Nobody was hurt and it was middle of the week so nobody much on the lake but the pics would bring a tear to your eyes seeing such a sweet ride destroyed

This happen to be it?

Another shot from the Saco river in Maine. This is an older photo from a local newspaper but it's a classic. Another victim of a falling tide.

I did it again yesterday in the so-called "North Cut" in Chatham.....getting to know the Chatham Harbormasters and CG Station Chatham folks on a first name basis....

I seem to have a knack for grounding exactly as the tide is falling like a rock, ensuring a nice long wait to float loose in the next tide.

I've learned the hardway that you don't go straight from NC-D to NC-C. One of the harbormasters said, "Oh yeah....we really should have a marker to show that dog-leg."

As the old saying goes on forums such as these, "No picture....No <fill in the blanks>".

Would that were true for groundings.....here is my latest adventure in grounding. If you extend the line of view from the bow, you can see the little spec that was the next white marker in the channel from the one I just passed.

This one was more exciting since, as the tide came up, I alternated small breakers port and starboard....weeeee! And of course, another ride home in the dark. At least I remembered to buy a spotlight since the last one!

This happened about 5 years ago. There used to be a large dock about 200 yards ahead, used by a heating oil company, which was removed over the winter. Prior to its removal, there was about 4'+ of water at low tide (this is a dock I have used for 35 years) but with the dock gone, it filled in quickly. We ran a line off the port side, which was attached to a tractor on the beach to keep 'Trudy' from falling to starboard. There were also several large fenders placed along the starboard side, which are blocked from view by a piling.

Naturally, this occurred the evening of the club's opening cocktail party.

There was no damage and she floated off a few hours later.

You know you are in Deep S#!t when Sea Tow arrives in a 4x4 with a back hoe.

I think this counts as being stuck at the boat ramp.

This was taken at the boat ramp in Ft. Lauderdale on Sunrise. I think he backed his trailer over the ledge and his truck continued to slide back on the slime. Poor guy, they had to use 2 tow trucks to pull his trailer out and then what was left of his truck.
