Boat on the rocks
 
Not sure how it got there but there was at least a 30’ cruiser on the rocks right at the entrance to Blackeys cove today. It was on the left hand side going in almost right up against the small island there. seatow and another boat had ropes on it and were trying to get it off but they weren’t even making it move at all. I was watching around noon and As of 5:00 the boat was still there. Looks like they will be trying a different strategy tomorrow.

Maybe they should wait for high tide. ;)

Five monster foam noodles, $5.50-ea, stuffed under where the hull is scraping the rocks could make it a little easier for the tow boat to pull it off the rocks.

Have noodle .... will roll! ...... plus they get to keep the shredded noodles as a memory souvenir from this happening event ...... :rolleye2:

Maybe an inflatable tube air bag to lift it up, and off the rocks ......or the big lift Lockheed CH-53K helicopter courtesy the Marine Corps ...... that could lift it!

Saw on FB today that they brought over a barge today that had a backhoe on it. Not sure how they got it off but the post said no damage to the boat

On September 11, 2021 at approximately 10:00 PM, NH State Police #TroopE Dispatch received a call of a boating accident at the mouth of Blackey Cove on Lake Winnipesaukee in Moultonborough.

#NHSP #MarinePatrol responded to the call. Upon arrival, Officer Scigliano met with the operator, who was the only person on board. The operator stated he got off course and struck rocks off Harvard Island. The operator was uninjured and brought to shore. Impairment did not appear to be a factor. Due to the location and size of the boat, attempts to remove it from the rocks were initially unsuccessful. On Monday, September 13, 2021, a barge was brought to the scene and the vessel was removed.


The crash is under investigation. Anyone who has further information related to this accident or who witnessed it is encouraged to contact Sgt. Nicholas Haroutunian 603-227-2112 or by email at Nicholas.M.Haroutunian@dos.nh.gov.

The operator lives directly across from the island that he grounded on, he could of swam home from there. You think he would be familiar with that island unless it was just recently placed there. “Got off course”? A boat that size with radar and GPS…..somethings not adding up here
