This is the the Fair Warning that my buddy sold last year to a guy in Mass. Captain is hurt. Terrible accident

With a boat name like that... You'd think he'd be more careful. Something to lighten the mood. Hope he gets better, the boats not to bad and he can get back to boating fairly quickly.

Wow

Usually you see Sea-Rays and Bayliners like that, not that jazzed up rig!

presumably that accident occurred in a no-wake zone

was the pilot impaired in some way? inexperienced, heart attack, seizure, stroke, drunk, stoned?

that's a man-made obstruction, I'm certain it was clearly marked on charts and charting software

Looks like a nice boat. I am hoping that captain and crew are OK.

Any idea what happened? That breakwater looks fairly close to the high water level. We have been on a full moon the last few days. Abnormally high tide perhaps?

Agree, more likely to be a Bayliner than a real boat. It is possible that she went up on high water when the jetty was just at or below the tide level. There is a rope tied off on the two stern cleats. Perhaps they tried to tow her off, but the effort failed as in all probability, the tide was dropping. It is also possible that these photos were taken at low tide and that the actual grounding is made to look much worse than it actually was.

Hope for a speedy recovery for Captain.

That was a real nice boat, what a shame.

Pictures 1 and 2 look like 2 different tides to me...
I hope everybody and the boat are OK in the end

Auto pilot doesn't take you back to the dock?

That is going to be one expensive bill on the running gear.

Should have been beach weather . Does a Carver make the Bayliner list?
Captains ego is probably hurt more than his body. You can repair a boat and that's why you carry insurance.
