    KODIAK, Alaska, June 18--The Coast Guard is investigating the grounding of the 70-foot vessel Waters, homeported in Homer. The vessel struck the number four dayboard when it grounded on a rock in Narrow Strait north of Kodiak Island near the village of Ouzinke early this morning. A dayboard is a navigational beacon that clearly marks the channel when navigating in a restricted waterway.

    Quite a balancing act the skipper has pulled-off. :rolleyes:

    Even when the tide comes in, it may not be enough to break the surface adhesion here...

    OOPS!!

    I took this picture last year on a Hollywood, FL beach. Does anyone else have any other good "oops!" pics? The sunken sailboat pic kinda triggered this idea.

    P.S. don't fall asleep while underway without a watchkeeper. the grinding, and crunching of the alarm clock must have really sucked for this skipper.

    This one (I think a 20m wooden built Italian motoryacht possibly from Cantieri Arno) is one of the many "victims" that each summer hit one of the rocks present off Porto Cervo/Costa Smeralda.

    He cleverly thought to drop the anchor as well, you never now if the boat might leave the rock it decided to "hug" ... :eek:
