Tank it was probably the reflection off your bald head. They thought it was a navigational aid

Don't they have any big tugs in the area? Pull it back to sea and hope it stays afloat long enough to get some crash pumps in??

Yea, I guess it's a pretty big deal one of these old ships goes aground. I found out that it isn't one of the early 1900's models though, it's a replica probably built in the 60's or 70's.

I don't know what they are doing (or not doing). There are large tug boats about 2 miles south of channel Islands harbor at Port Hueneme Navel harbor. My neighbor brought up a good point though. I'm sure the insurance companies are haggling with owners and the state/coast guard/ local harbor patorl etc etc. about how to get it off. It's not that easy of a job I wouldn't think. Someone's got to get on that thing and secure a few lines. So who's going to make the call that someone might get killed trying to un-beach this boat? The water was calm this a.m. though and the tide was high so maybe they'll get it off today.

Wow, that's sure a shame.

Check the link to the video of the news report. Check the images...at one point, they have a line on it, but looks like they dont have enough power to pull it through the surf...

Get in your new Cig, tie a rope around that dang thing and get it out of there......oh yeah. It's a Cig and it's raining. Should I bring my Formula up and do it?

Your Formula would have to be running first! Don't hate 'cause you're a closet Cig lover. Cig envy doesn't look good on you Nort!
