As we look at the google image is that really the channel it dug itself or was that just dumb luck it went in.I have to ask cause cause it looks like a backhoe went through there.How much more damage could it make than it already has?

Surely someone can tow a line from deeper water..its not that far in the muck.

yes that trech was dug by the keel also keep in mind that it had a great deal of storm force pushing it through and at the time the water was also deeper because of the storm surge. many many large forces acting on it to get it where it is. i think if you tried to pull a boat like that out as high as it is, you would probably do fatal damage to the hull and suprestructure. only way out is to coffer dam it or dredge the path to accomodate the keel i would guess.

Just make it a bed and breakfast. or a whorehouse. lol
Either way... I am sure he can afford to buy a few tanks to drop into the trench when finished.. instant eco system solved.
