This morning, we went out looking for the trimaran last reported in trouble off Emma Schmitz Viewpoint, as noted by Beach Drive Blog. Didn’t see it and hoped that meant all was well. Then we got the photo from Michelle, who says that since she’s taken it, the trimaran has now gone completely aground by Harbor West (the over-water condos in the photo). She says the captain is safe – she helped him get out of the water earlier, and he’s now napping. What happens next depends on when he wakes up and what happens when the tide comes in.
1:38 PM UPDATE: Police were at the scene earlier checking on this but then were notified the boat’s owner is OK; we took a new photo (above). Neighbor Michelle, meantime, reports he has called the Coast Guard and is coming back at high tide.
10:44 PM NOTE: This isn’t resolved yet, according to Michelle, who says the owner is apparently going to try again tomorrow. Beach Drive Blog has an update, and commenters here have some additional info, including reports that the trimaran was recently listed as available for free.
