Crazy Pictures  Bottom

  • I was greeted with a big surprise today when I went to do some pre-season prep work on my boat. I guess 110 mph+ winds had come through the area and blown a bunch of the boats around, including mine.

    Amazingly, after forty-five minutes of going over the boat with a fine tooth comb, I haven't found so much as a scratch in the gel coat. Apparently, when the boat blew over, it did all of it's rotation in the air and landed flat on the trailer's mast cradles (so the mast cradles took the force, not the boat). Needless to say, the trailer didn't fare as well, but that's ok. The trailer is actually not as bad as it looks in the pictures though--we intentionally disassembled the it so we could lift it off the boat, and the pictures were taken when we had the it almost all the way taken apart.

    Anyway, I am happy to say that my baby is unscathed, and is now roped down to 8 24 inch stakes!

    Ryan, thanks for sharing and I'm really glad your cat survived. I think it might have used up at least one of the the nine lives!

    Your story is perfect for the "Beachcats Situation" section of the photo albums. Please create a new album and upload your pictures and description of the situation there. Will serve as a warning for tying down boats, plus a testiment to how tough these boats are.
