Default how to remove a beached boat

well . . . this is one way i guess

I cant for the life of me figure out why this boat had to be removed in the manor. seems like it could have easily been saved with not that much difficulty actually. Trench out the sand on the port side and let the tide push the boat in to level it out when the tide goes back out pump out the boat and let the tide come back in and free the boat back up (or something to that affect).

My guess is that the cost of replacing everything ruined by the saltwater would have made it a total loss anyway. I wonder how much it's going to cost to fix all the problems they are going to have with the tracks on the excavators from being dunked in the saltwater.

Looking at the pictures close, it looks like all the electronics, engines, etc. had already been stolen or removed first. If that's the case, probably more to float than scrap.

I'd think that would make more of a mess with all the splinters.

Seems like dragging at high tide would be a better solution.
