    Who hasn't drug anchor? Last time for me was in Hilo Inner Harbor (Radio Bay) in 10 feet of water, silty bottom. My 22 pound CQR plow pulled through the soft mud like the ploughshare it was. The solution was to stop pulling.

    More dramatic was the grounding of the bulk carrier M/V OCEAN BREEZE off the coast of Chile after the anchor dragged.

    To my eye, it appears only one anchor was set....and doesn't the port anchor look a bit odd?

    The first salvage attempt failed. Then the big boys showed up, a 50 man crew from TITAN Salvage. 10 months after the grounding, the cargo of wet grain had been ingeniously removed using aerial means. 6 giant anchors attached to 5,000 meters of 3" chain were safely afixed to the ship through dangerous surf and the pull began.

    With 1,000 tons of pulling force, OCEAN BREEZE came off the beach, pretty as you please. What do you do with a ship that has been declared a "total loss?" because of "severe structural deficiencies?" After international marine ecosystem legalities were covered, TITAN towed OCEAN BREEZE 46 miles to sea and sank it. TITAN's next job? Get the wrecked cruise ship COSTA CONCORDIA off the Italian island.

    A happier ending for "California Condor" who dragged shore at Drakes Bay in this year's OYRA Race.

    Gosh, I knew it gets windy in Drakes Bay, but CA CONDOR rail down with just the blade up and no main sets a new standard. Thanks for the photo!

    I'm on Hat Island Washington for the weekend.
    waiting for my friend to pick me up on the dock in Everett I noticed this steel dreadnought for sale.
    Apart from being the Yang to Mouton Noir's Yin, the ground tackle was what initially caught my eye.. mostly because I nearly took my head out walking past it

    Then I went and looked at the listing... this really is a spiritual [smaller] sister to M.N., in white. I've never seen a stainless steel mast, but it makes sense on a steel hull I suppose...

    Oh dear lord don't write that on Sailing Anarchy or there'll be a riot for the next decade.

    Actually, the boat looks pretty good to me.

    Albert Strange, (1855-1917) was a renowned English artist, single and double-handed sailor, and designer of over 150 classic small sailing ships, many of them of light displacement and shoal draft to take the ground of England's East Coast. His designs are still sought after, and retain a classic beauty.

    Strange's life and designs are celebrated among connoisseurs here: http://www.albertstrange.org/

    Albert Strange's largest design, now 107 years old, is the cutter TALLY HO at 48 feet LOD. TALLY HO achieved great fame by winning the third Fastnet Race in 1927 in appalling conditions that caused the retirement of 13 of 15 entries including JOLIE BRISE. http://www.yachttallyho.com/index.ph...tnet-race-1927

    notice the foreguy on the flexible 30 foot spinnaker pole is a pair of legs!......

    In 1967, TALLY HO sailed for New Zealand, chartering in the Caribbean en route. In the South Pacific TALLY HO was wrecked on a reef, but pulled off and repaired. A new owner sailed her to Hawaii where she was sold to a fisherman from Oregon. She fished out of Brookings, Oregon from 1978 into the 1990s, repeatedly sailing to the South Pacific, before being abandoned in Brookings when her owner moved to Hawaii.

    Until recently it looked like the abandoned TALLY HO would be broken up in Brookings when she fortuitously came under the ownership of Leo Sampson Goolden, an experienced and motivated young English sailor and ship wright.

    Goolden had TALLY HO moved to Sequim, WA, put under cover of a well equipped work shop, and is now commencing on the ambitious rebuild, from keel up, of this historical yacht. Goolden, a talented writer, is documenting his story is here, and I hope to visit TALLY HO in the near future.

    Great, Sleddog! I think that you will enjoy the talented, low-key Leo. Thanks for giving his story a push.
