It's been said that every yacht has a "face".
This one has the worst case of 'overbite' I've ever seen.

Check out this video...looks like a 35' to 40' Motoryacht getting stuck under a bridge...first hand view too! Reminds me of that saying..."trying to stuff 10 lbs of crap in a 5 lb bag!". Close your office door before watching, my sick humour somehow found it funny to watch, but thats just me!

Hi all, long time reader and first time poster.
This thread has finally made me come out of my lurking in the hope that one of you can help me find a picture I have been looking for.

I remember seeing a photo of a 40ft (approx) sportfisher trying to go out through some large shore based waves, the photo in particular was of it in a vertical position with the wave crashing just over it's bow.

has anyone seen this photo or have a copy of it ? the original one i saw was actually in an advertisement for boat insurance.

Next to Sharky's recent "Splash Seen 'Round The World" photos, arguably the most famous 'ohmygawd' photo is Geo. C. Scott's "Mojo", a 81' Ditmar & Donaldson climbing up a big one:

Clever post! (as always)

Truly an amazing photo of George C's boat going to battle. Patton approved!

Does anyone know where Mojo is now? Did she survive the damage or was she scrapped?

Frankly, I think it was poor judgement on the part of the skipper to try and make it out on such a big day. Yes, it is fortunate they made it out ok, physically. I used to live in San Luis Obispo, about 20 minutes from Morro Bay, and I can tell you from experience that waves that large do not come in the rogue variety. I have been out by the rock (scaled down version of the Rock Of Gibralter) when waves have been breaking over that jetty-- we're talking 25ft+ at that point. That day, the coast guard would not try to get out-- the waves were wrapping around the jetty and resulting in 8-10 ft a-frame barrels rolling through the channel leading into the harbor-- truly amazing stuff.

Mojo was repaired and I see her almost every day now in Newport Beach doing day charters and harbour cruises.
tough old girl I guess!

Thanks Yotphix - it's always good to hear when boats survive. Let's hope the same is true of Legacy!

Hurricanes can do strange things...

"Bad Advice"


"[blank stare]"


Hurricane Isabelle, 2003 - Not sure exactly where each of these pictures were taken, but they were both somewhere around my hometown of Deltaville/Middlesex County.

First post, come here from time to time just because I enjoy reading the discussions... thought a few could chuckle at these unfortunate situations.
