Anyone know who's this moored boat is? (Torbay)

Recommended Posts

I'm sure I remember someone telling me about a boat that came off a mooring there in an E/NE blow and ended up what seemed like halfway up the cliff when the tide went out.

There was a ferro motor-sailer that came off about 2 years ago, ended up on the cliffs to the south. If salvaged within a week or so it could have been saved. But this was during Covid lockdowns, no-one was allowed, and so it stayed there for months until destroyed by nor-easterly blows.

Last year the Torbay Sailing Club patrol boat ended up against the sea-wall. Quick thinking club members with tyres and buoys prevented it being bashed, and within a day it was saved and back out on the mooring.

It's hard to determine the owner of the moored boat without more context. It could belong to a local resident, a tourist, or a nearby marina. If you have specific information or a reason to find out, it might be worth asking around the area or checking with the harbor master for more details.
