Default Boat VS Rocks

35 Chris Craft, recently totally refurbished, hit rocks and took on water south of Governor's Island. Air bags going on now and towing it to Mountain View to be taken out of the water.

Is that the Chris Craft Nick Wilmerding was working on for a long time??

10 were aboard at the time - all safe ! And I understand it- they hit in the Witches. It was towed over and is presently sitting on the bottom on a beachfront of Gov island until they airbag it and float it to MVYC

Sad way to end the season.

Yes, and it is the one that Nick Wilmerding did all the wiring on. It was a beautiful boat. Completely redone interior, cabinets,wiring Etc.

Yes it’s a few slips over from mine. I admired it every time I passed it or in and out of the marina. What a shame a beautiful boat

Was it the Witches? I gotta think with a vessel like that they'd have GPS and one of those dotted line things to show safe passage.

He was doing about 14 knots and thought he was outside of the markers. Sad story, nice guy, nice boat. He is the second owner who had the boat totally rebuilt by Miles Marine. The first owner of the boat was Gerry Angiulo. Great history!

Thatís brutal, itís surprising they were able to tow it to MVYC even with the floatation bags. Thatís going to be difficult if not impossible to repair, so sorry to see this happen to anyone but even worse when theyíve put so much into restoring it.

My heart goes out to the owner. Winni is a very unforgiving lake, The captain needs to be so very much aware of nav markers each and every minute.

This is what it should look like. Might not be as tough to fix the keel as I thought.

Default For the Record

FOR THE RECORD -

I have seen a "dust up" over another post in Social Media (iBoat) over pictures & statements posted.

First & foremost, I am NOT that poster.

Second, should any of my pic's in this thread wind up in the media (newspapers, etc.) it is WITHOUT my authorization!!

I posted these as the event was "public" knowledge and I feel it serves as a good warning to all us boaters of what can happen...……….

Again, with 10 aboard, this could have had a VERY different ending …….. thankfully - it did not!


As stated above, the owner recently spent a tremendous amount restoring this craft & I feel for him.

I think after the repairs are made to the hull, shafts, struts, and props the larger issue may be the interior. The water in the boat rose above the engines and actually floated the cabin floorboards. It may take a while to figure out everything that the water damaged and come up with a repair plan.

At least it wasn't in June or July and he got the season to use the boat. At this point they will have all winter to make the repairs. As Phantom said, it is nice that no one was hurt.

That’s a shame....I saw the transformation of that boat from the time the restoration started at Miles facility. It took forever and a tremendous amount of time and money was spent. I would be sick if that was my boat... glad everyone is OK but still a heartbreaking shame for the owner...

I'm so sorry to learn about this. I had this beautiful boat parked next to me for a while across the channel from me.

Can anyone show on a chart or Google maps where this grounding happened at the witches?

Default Curious

Does anyone know exactly where this guy hit rocks?...I'm hearing conflicting info. Now hearing he hit rocks by Eagle Island and floated into the witches. If true, that's a long way to float especially with the damage seen in the pics.

I do see a lot of boaters try to cut between Eagle and the black markers just to the North. While it can be done in a smaller boat during full lake, certainly no one in their right mind would attempt in a boat that size at 19" below full lake. Not saying this is what happened whatsoever just the curiosity of where he exactly hit interests me...

Dan

Maybe people should just mind their own business. If the owner of the boat wants to post pictures of his boat, then why don't you let him!! How would you like it if you had an ACCIDENT and people posted you all over social media?? Mind your own business!! And for the record... I do not know this guy!

You are being most charitable toward waterskir. The reason I object to his curmudgeonly remarks toward some forum members is that most of them care deeply what happens to others, and I have personally had the benefit of their suggestions on many occasions. Their comments are mot meant to embarrass anyone....they truly feel sorry that the accident happened. So...
please be more kind, waterskir.....it might make you feel better.
There.....Iíve had my say....thatís it! 😇

To Watrskir: Your posts are off the mark! Everyone that posted was respectful and sympathetic towards the owner. There is nothing here to be concerned about.

We have all learned a lot from this website including the lessons learned from the accidents of others. I think the information posted on this site has made many of us better boaters and helped to further a sense of community on the lake. It's all good!

The lake is only 4Ē lower than normal for this time of year. Based on the pics, I really donít think an extra 4Ē would have helped much...

Waterskir - the answer to your question is an easy one for me - "If there was something to be learned and gained from it - by all means".

The point of my last post was to make clear that this Forum was the ONLY place where I have posted as I have since seen it pop up elsewhere.

I notice that you are (like me) a long time Forum member, albeit an infrequent poster, so clearly this thread (not started by me, btw) "hit a button" with you .........… I will let my record of posts & comments on this Forum stand their own !

I agree that we all learn a lot from the Forum however, I personally would not want pictures of any mishap that happened to me posted on here regardless of what it "teaches" anyone. I think it puts the involved parties in an awkward position, they have enough to deal with the incident itself.

I agree, even understanding best intentions and sympathies from all, it would only make the matter that much worse for me knowing everyone else sees the details in such vivid and up close pictures.

Not condemning anyone here, just saying if this were me, I would prefer the intimate details of damage done to the boat not be broadcast to the world.

I think its enough for any of us who love our boats (and all boats) to say this is a heartbreaking event for the owner.

Yes I don't believe getting the boat back sea worthy is going to be an issue. However time and money are another subject all together. Its not like there are many shops that boat will slip into, to be working on it through the winter. And then of course if insurance is involved that can get problematic too....

All in All I am glad that everyone is reported as OK that was on the boat. And that they got the boat back to shore and out of the water without to much trouble.
