Yacht semi submerged off Waikalabubu

Yes you have to be really careful around that point. And the problem I’ve found there (and other similar spots) is that over-familiarisation over many years can easily leave to over-complacency. Not saying that’s what happened here but I know I’ve given myself a few ‘wake up calls’ over the years despite being in home waters! 😳

9991.pngif you can hit that rock you should of hit sooner, doubt whether they hit it but rather a submerged object. Just before xmas heading from kawakawa bay to wilson bay farms,just on dawn doing 45knots,we managed to stop before hitting a semi submerged fridge,towed it to wilson bay and now lies above hwst mark.Notified c/g and rang Thames council to say it was on the beach.

That's sad.

What's the boat, anyone know?

just guessing - looks a bit like one of Spencer's later designs or maybe a Senior Reacher (the bean series)
