Clearly the guy who put the sign in should be fired immediately, that was very careless of him.

It almost looks like he's "pre-positioning" the boat to look like the storm washed it up...very strange.

LOL!!!!!! "Mad Money"!!!!!


Mad cuz they don't have the money to own a boat........

My buddy is an insurance adjuster. He was getting Florida hurricane claims at 10am this morning. The storm is still 24+ hours out, stalled in the Bahamas!!!!

Good job with the pics! Now who here knows how we can make sure this POS doesn't get an insurance claim off of this???

Maybe he wants to clean hull bottom.....

The used to beach wood ships at high tide in the carribean to remove barnacles and buildup. Particularly pirates....who needed ships to be fast.

It was already on the evening news. I’m sure they’d like to have the backstory provided above but I don’t have any contacts there.

Mine pays for half up to a certain dollar amount that I don't even come close to.

He beached it on the North side of the pocket of a N NW blowing storm . Hope the insurance company can figure that out if that's what it is.

For those with more knowledge than me, this area has a gradual drop off. As the tide ebbed could the weight of the boat cause the props to breach the hull or was there likely a breach before he beached it? I don't think there was enough list as he keeled over to allow wake water to get over the gunwale to fill up the cockpit.

Water came in thru the scupper, not over the gunnel

His stbd engine is filled with water thru exhaust listed like that

Most likely panic set in after unable to find safe harbor, paired with some engine issues (smoke), desperation is an ugly cologne

There were two or three patrol cars and one boat who addressed the situation. I don't think he got a ticket but the boat folks and I in my boat were chuckling at him. Granted, we're all rednecks down here to the yankees but we were chuckling, "Not from round here."

I’d say call the police. These are the reasons why all our insurance goes up yearly...that was 100% uncalled for and seems like a setup. Why the hell would anyone want to travel towards the storm?

I would say he almost certainly filled both engines with water coming back up from the exhaust.

Then there's the running gear... (props, shafts, struts and rudders ) That ain't cheap.

What Ps me O is that he's parked diagonally, taking up more than one spot. That is a real douche move.
