Why on earth would they destroy that boat as opposed to freeing it up by some other means. Thats a shame, heck they probably could'a trenched out the beach with the back hoe and let the tide do the work.

this took place in the bahamas, at the DEvils' backbone, late june early july

if you look closely, you will see that the boat is not only buried in the sand, it's also filled with sand and water, leaving really nothing to salvage. in one of the first pictures, it even looks like the stern is broken up on the starboard side.

a friend of mine was there when it happened, here are a couple more pictures. apparently, the owner/captain didn't want to pay a pilot from Spanish Wells to transit that tricky passage...

the second picture was taken while they were pumping the fuel out of the tanks.

this is a grim reminder that once a boat gets beached in the surf, it's really game over. the wave action will fill the boat and bury the hull deep in the sand.

thats very sad for the boat - but i think there's always a funny side on the pictures - just look at those people on page 7 lying on the beach having the action movie direct in front of their hotel *hrhrhr*

That's too bad.
Hate to see a boat being broken up like that.
Kind of reminds me of "The Who" smashing thier guitars at concerts...is nothing sacred??


This guy up here didn't have the sand to contend with and he was able to use the next high tide. Plus the terrain wouln't allow an excavator to get in there!

Good Point Ken, It would be interesting to see if there were any marks/damage on the one for sale showing that it had been removed by excavator.

huge difference between a swamped boat full of sand and one that just goes high and dry...

My bet the boat was totalled for insurance purposes after just a few tide changes....

So true, but a picture is worth a thousand words. If seeing this gets just one weekend warrior thinking that having a captain on board (even to just look over his shoulder) may not be such a bad investment it's OK. I'm sure that guy has learned.
For those who just think of boats as toys let's put it in prospective. Would you invest over a million dollars on say a piece of art and ship it across the country in the back of a kids hoopty? Insurred or not, IT'S A MILLION DOLLAR INVESTMENT. You can't spend every moment thinking of it as that and enjoy it. So, spend a few bucks and hire someone who will because it's his job.
