Exclamation Pamela Rose went aground.......that left a mark!!!!

Noticed a good sized boat being pulled out of the water next to the Lido Dry Stack last weekend by crane. I was 300 feet way, and I said to myself.....that sure is a funny looking bottom on that boat the way it curves in half way.

Later I found out that it was the Pamela Rose, one of the main bait boats that services Newport Harbor.

Today I had a chance to walk over an take a few pics. They say it's fixable........

Steel is for real!! That is the main reason that I wouldn't buy a large fiberglass yacht. Glass is great for the go fast stuff, but if I'm going to be a couple hundred miles off shore I want steel. Imagine hitting a floating shipping container in the middle of the night. As long as you keep a steel boat painted it will last practically forever.

Thats right Rat. My parents just crossed the Atlantic in a 45ft Sailboat. They hit a sleeping whale, had flying fish all over the deck and in the Doldrums (a place where all the crap ends up in a big circle that does not move) they saw Containers and enough wood and debris to build a city. If it were not for radar and sonar they would have punched a hole in it many times. How would you like to spend 14 days watching for crap.
