Was there Sunday and heard nothing. Is this around the #11 where the charts are off by more than 100 feet.

Would make sense with a moon tide this weekend they'd be that high and dry.

Pics from Saturday. The channel is rather well marked in this vicinity.

Curious. What part of the Hook is this?

Boat US dragging it that far to the water would likely tear the struts, rudder and prop out dragging it across the sand. A heavy boat. It would start sinking the second it was refloated.

Any more info?

A real tedious salvage due to inboard propulsion system is brittle and would all snap off.

Tow Boat US was there when I got there, but they left after awhile, leaving the grounded boat there.

They made no attempt to pull the boat off while I was there. Strange also, there were a bunch of people on the back platform of the tow boat dangling their legs in the water. Struck me as odd...

I too left the area before high tide, which is when I assumed they would attempt to get it off the beach.

Sorry, no more info.

EXACTLY where I thought. Inside SH #11. The charts are TOTALL WRONG THERE.

The plotter & charts shows about 500 feet from #11 to shore. At high tide its covered an and at low tide its only about 150 feet (NOT 500') from the #11.

Five years ago the USCG "was" concerned worried enough about that error to put add an 11A buoy inside the existing #11 buoy to show how inaccurate the charts were

That part of the Hook is growing each year. Those flats where this boat is (based on the pin point) disappears under water on a moon tide but only has about 1-1.5 feet of water cover.

Not to argue, but according to my Navionics map, it shows 150', not 500. See picture.

Again, I don't know the circumstances of this boat's particular grounding.
