Just got this info off yacht forums.

"this took place in the bahamas, at the DEvils' backbone, late june early july

if you look closely, you will see that the boat is not only buried in the sand, it's also filled with sand and water, leaving really nothing to salvage. in one of the first pictures, it even looks like the stern is broken up on the starboard side.

a friend of mine was there when it happened, here are a couple more pictures. apparently, the owner/captain didn't want to pay a pilot from Spanish Wells to transit that tricky passage...

the second picture was taken while they were pumping the fuel out of the tanks.

this is a grim reminder that once a boat gets beached in the surf, it's really game over. the wave action will fill the boat and bury the hull deep in the sand."

A fellow named Jim Darr was demostrating the boat to another fellow named Big Scotty (who was retired from his professional sports career and looking for a cruiser for the Bahamas). This was no ordinary Sea Ray it had zero emission high performance diesels with ASD 10's and a secret hull step pioneered at Supercat Cove. First Mate Tripple Digits was on the lookout but the 100 ft rooster tail was too hypnotizing for him to stop watching. Jim was rattling off the benefits of the mystery diesels when suddenly they ran aground because Tripple Digits wasn't watching ahead. Now they are aground and Ratman and Duramaxx3500 were pissed that their headers/exhaust may have been damaged during their grounding and they wouldn't get them back. Reggie Fountain is the guy in the beach chair spying on the high performance trials since he had already been outdone by Bob The Builder's Mexican Race in his 50 Nortech diesel boat.

Now IB said they would take care of the grounding since they are a partner with Sea Tow and because everyone involved were members it would be taken care of immediately.

Sy Goldberg inadvertently excluded windstorm and Bahamas coverage from the policy since Jim told him the boat was going to be exclusively used at LOTO for the shootout as a pace boat for the event. Now that Tropical Storm Faye is on the way the locals wanted to get the boat off the beach as quickly as possible.

The doors are missing because they were ordered from Trick Marine and were to be installed by Marc Prinz of Precision Custom Marine out of N.C. Trick shipped them but Marc couldn't get them done in time for the sea trial since he was building some custom blower motors for a guy. Chris Sunkin thought the boat would handle the chop better if the eisenglass was all zippered up for upper air wind deflection.

The owner got a few offers on the boat from Customryder, Dreamer and the local recycling plant. The recycler had the high bid so he got the boat and took it away...........

Sydwayz was on the beach telling everyone Active Thunder was building a 48 Flybridge cruiser that had a patented hull to handle the extra power. Boatme was trying to sell the owner a plaque to remember the event. Jayboat was the guy that shot the pictures and Sharkey was still loading them on his site, stay tuned. Blume was trying to broker the boat and he would accept euros, dollars or even Bahamian money for the boat. Ed Cozzi was on hand to survey the boat for any potential buyer and MarineClean could buff out any scratches from the beaching.

How was that for a story? Any characters left out?
Thanks Jupiter , l like it

The boat appears to be a Sea Ray 480 DB (Sedan Bridge). Worth maybe 350-450K on a good day
