The same storm claimed this boat that was visiting to attend the Round Bowen race and got blown off its mooring in Tunstall Bay on Bowen's exposed side. Sad.

I've been slacking a little. This one's from mid-July when we had a bit of wind blow through. I took the pic while going out for a Thursday night race, but all I had was my cel phone. The boat didn't stay aground for long -- it was gone the next day.

Here's the crop from this weekend that were featured in the news clip Stephen C. posted. Considering the number of boats out there, and the reported 25+ knot northwesterly winds, I'm actually surprised there weren't more victims.

All three are liveaboards. Couldn't tell what happened to the anchor line on the reddish vessel on Sunset Beach. The little white jobbie broke its rode and wound up on the rocks. He then grounded it on the Kitsilano launch ramp to try to address some damage and leaking at the aft end of the keel. He had all his gear emptied out and piled up on the launch dock.

The big blue one on Kits Beach looks to have dragged its anchor. He has made a political statement of the whole thing … the pics are self explanatory. For the record, it ain't his first visit to Kits Beach (check out page 1 of this thread) and they sank and totalled a 38-foot Bayliner last time they pulled it off the beach (see post #22).

I have been anchored in False Creek for almost two weeks now waiting on a slip. Its been very entertaining watching the comings and goings of boats that are on the fringe. There is a parade of boats that comes in late at night under cover of darkness and then leave again in the morning to take their place out near Kits Point and beyond. Its so unfortunate that many of these have no idea about boats, anchoring, navigation, lights, etc and end washed up on our beaches and generally creating a bad impression of liveaboards.

Did anyone notice in that video (and you can see it in Simon's pictures) that the big blue sailboat has (at least) two engines. Or at least 2 props. It has a big 3 blade prop behind the full keel (in the normal spot), then a folding prop on the port side near the 3 blade one. (I wonder if he declared the folding prop on his rating)

I think if you want to make your grounded polluting boat a political statement you should check your sign for spelling errors (or two)

I wonder how he feels about the BC government handing over all riparian rights to First Nations?
