55 Foot Boat stuck off Whale Harbor
What were they thinking? It's hard the figure how anyone could own or be the captain of an expensive 55 foot yacht with all the bells and whistles (like radar and chart plotters), yet lack the wisdom to use channel markers.
I am very familiar with this area, it's a great Tarpon fishing spot. There is a narrow little unmarked channel in there but he missed that too. If you look closely you can see the ditch he dug between the two boats. The fine will be hefty since they charge $75 per square yard and they are still measuring the damage estimated to be a half mile long.
