1) - it will buff right out
2)- Link no good without pictures of Admiral
3)- Boat captain must have made the mistake of drinking a beer or three throughout the day and therefore was blind drunk when he mistakenly moored the boat over the seawall. A tee-totaling captain could not possibly have made that mistake.

Any more?

Wonder how much the salvage company got?
Sounds like someone with a negative money/common sense quotient.

That wall has gotten several boats, people need to watch their plotters. It's marked but you cannot see it at high tide...

Why doesn't someone attach a bunch of floats to it as a marker?

I will never understand how any boater can beach his boat. The guy must be a moron.

You ought to fish down my way!

With a 23 ft. tide swing at peak, it's a lot easier to do than you might suspect. You learn to live with it, though. Just means you have to plan launching and recovery around the tides, which may or may not be at a convenient time. And become VERY familiar with what's in the harbor; there is only a small main channel at low tide. The shrimp boats can't even make it in or out at low. There are also some bays and such that go completely empty at low tide. I've seen boats stranded there waiting for the tide to come back in. You'd think that the tide change is slow, but it actually happens very quickly, faster than most folks realize.

My second trip out of the Penasco harbor many years ago at high tide had me put a sponson of my cat up on a flat-top rock (at idle no wake speed) that is normally perfectly visible. No damage, tiny scrape, but I was embarrassed as hell when I could not power off the rock and had to get two pangas to yank me off. Hey, feces occurs, but I learned the hard way.

Same is true at entrance of the harbor in San Carlos, Sonora. Many a boat has hit the unmarked rocks near the entrance to the harbor. The ONLY clue they are there is a piece of rebar sticking straight up out of the water. Once you know they are there, well, you know and always cut wide around them. But, more than one newbie or sunset dinner/drinker has hit them. Again, a matter of really knowing your local waters.

I guy I know several years ago ran his 36ft. Mainship aground on rocks just outside Ft Independence in Boston Harbor at low tide. The area is clearly marked and is know to almost everyone as an area to stay clear of. He also had just has 15k worth of new electronics installed but at the time didn't bother to turn them on, go figure. All this from a guy that is smart enough to be a self made millionaire.

We have a 7.5ft tide swing so people getting stuck or hitting rocks down here is not unusual. In my case I was chasing bait and simply drove onto a barely submerged beach.....understandable but moronic.

I thought their was a picture of your boat beached floating around in the worst stuck thread. I was trying to find it to post her but am on my phone.

Why would they build a seawall that isn't above water all the time? So it only does its job at low tide??
