    Fishing vessel beached 11/17/23 by Manasquan Inlet NJ

    In my local news...

    This happened early in the morning. The boat was out of Rhode Island and is supposedly a squid boat. There were 4 crew members, one got off early on after the beaching. This video shows the 3 remaining crew members getting off the boat, pretty poorly. Rescuing the crew starts at the 41 minute mark.

    We go in and out of this inlet all the time in our boat.

      And this is the salvage attempt which failed. As the tug was towing the boat, it immediately listed, rolled and sank in 45-50 of water.

      In the news they plan to get divers down to see what can be done about another salvage attempt. The boat sits in a high trafficked recreational boating area outside the Manasquan Inlet just off shore from a recreational beach. The Coast Guard has it marked with a buoy for now.

          Did the engine quit or what exactly happened? Also, was it high tide when the salvage attempt was done? Apparently when the fuel was pumped out, they lost a lot of ballast.

            Funny when it happens to a submarine, 99% due to navigation negligence. Saw the Stimson stuck twice in Crooked River after passing the tender. Sent some crew member to the Memphis who were going to Port Everglades. This one was especially funny. The sub surfaced much closer to shore than they thought and commenced their low-pressure blow while running in-land. On a 688, you have so long to run before you're actually holding on the surface. Because the nav-clowns didn't understand through visual recognitions where exactly they were...South Florida has a ba-zillion watertowers and they grounded fully in-sight of Fort Lauderdale's beach. A buddy of mine was Chief of the Watch U/I and couldn't believe it. So they sat there and prayed that the incoming tide would be sufficient to lift them off. It did and they made their merry way. In-port people that came to see the sub were all talking about how they saw them grounded. Really rubbing salt into the wound.
