    That happened here this last week, we had record low wind tides and left a few boats high and dry-----of course the sail boats end up laying oh their side.

    Tides out, boat stuck in dirt (mud).........

    The channel to get into the the river mouth is only about 10 metres wide. The boat has a beam of 5 m. If you look closely at the pic you will see the port channel marker buoy which is supposed to mark the edge of the channel sitting high and dry. Because of the strong easterlies ( 25 to 35 knots) over the last 2 days coupled with the extremely high tides, the wave action carved a new channel ( out of shot behind the camera). Because this new channel reduced the flow out of the main channel, the resultant drop in water flow allowed silt to build up and moved the main channel 10+ metres sideways. 2 days is all it took to move hundreds and hundreds of tons of sand/mud.

    Here is another pic taken from the boat looking out the port side.  You can see the new channel in the background.

    On the opposite side of the boat the water was 2m deep at low tide ( when these pics were taken)


    When we came back up the harbour the tide was covering the banks. and the wind had completely dropped so there was no indication of the sideways shift. We hit our gps marks for the centre of the channel which wasnt there any more and at 12knots we simply slid up the mud and stopped..............then had to wait 4hrs for the boat to be refloated after the tide went out and came back in.

    Some of the punters grabbed buckets and brushes and they did a great job of scrubbing the hull while we waited........... :)

    After inspecting the hull/props/shafts etc and ascertaining there was no damage, when she refloated we proceeded on.

    There was a nice sunset though..........



    Still enjoying the trip of a lifetime and making the best of what I have.....

    One thing I do miss about California are the parking lots. Here in Florida, every candy ass business has their own driveway and their own parking lot - and 99% of the time, they're not connected to any other parking lots, so if you turn into the wrong one (signs all packed together, hard to tell sometimes), you're hosed. In California, even if the lots were built separately, they all connect together. *shrug* I don't get it...

    Yep, we have an inlet here that is infamous for doing just that.  I was following my GPS to my favorite beach spot and beached myself in the process.  Thank God I know better now so I was doing just under 4 knots.  A quick reverse got me off the new sand bar but the new channel to the beach is still nowhere to be found...

    I'm glad I didn't have 18 tons to stop tonite, the old MBZ can stop on a dime! It had to, some *nice person* thought cutting the corner on a 90 was a good idea. If I hadn't stopped instantly, I would have T-boned him/her...
