West Seattle Weather Watch: Beached boat

Deborah sent that photo with the explanation:

Just wanted to let you know that we are aware that our Tollycraft 26 broke loose from its mooring in the high winds this morning and ended up on the beach just south of Lincoln Park. We are working on a solution to get it back in the water.

We’re checking to see if they’ve had any luck yet. Meanwhile, the latest forecast says it’ll continue to be blustery into the evening, still with a chance of thunderstorms. 12:21 PM UPDATE: Deborah says they’re hoping to be able to get it back in the water with the next high tide at 5:30 pm.

7:52 PM UPDATE: With Coast Guard Vessel Assist help, the boat is back out at sea again (warning, video as choppy as the sea):

    Russell Johnson lives on Bainbridge Island. Maybe we can see if The Professor can come over and help out.

    Tollycraft is a well-made boat so that visit to the beach probably did no damage to the hull.

    That’s a 1973 tollycraft 26 if I’m not mistaken. Great boat, I agree noting wrong with the hull but the prop shaft and rudder might need a look at.

    Have someone drag out the anchor and maybe you’ll be able to pull it off if it’s not too far up the beach

    Try mooring it for the winter. Great boat. Let me know if you need a hand. I work for beer and pizza.

      Thanks for the updates. Patrick was going back over there after checking out a couple of wrecks in east WS so I hope he made it in time to see that – TR

    I saw that boat bobbin hard when that little windstorm blew through a couple of weeks ago!! Winds must have been straight out of the west. Thats a Vessel Assist boat, not the Coast Guard.

    • WSB March 29, 2010 (8:10 pm)

      Will fix.

  • sun*e March 29, 2010 (10:37 pm)

  • Lumpia2 March 30, 2010 (11:49 pm)

Sorry, comment time is over.
