The also rans:
Was doing my usual morning loop of lovely Bar Harbor (Acadia’s main harbor), starting at the ‘Bar’ and continuing through town, when on a whim I pulled into the harbor — mainly because I saw an empty parking spot. As soon as I parked I saw the boat. Directly in front of us. Knew right away that this was ‘unusual’. Hadn’t seen any wrecks in this harbor before and it was my 9th time in Bar Harbor.
Took these pictures. Later on that day, back at the ‘Wonder View Inn‘, read the above story online.
Wow. So, we must have pulled in shortly after they ‘beached’ her. In my time on ‘The Lake‘ I have untangled many a fouled prop — albeit by either leaning over or going in the water. This looks like it was a rookie mistake by a youngster. I feel bad for him. Replacing the electronics and engine will not be ‘cheap’ — even if insurance kicks in.
