Good thing Carson Beach doesn't have resident-only parking

Carson Beach boat

Yesterday, David Parsons photographed the sailboat that's been sitting on Carson Beach since Sandy blew it there.

not that easy

I've wondered for a while how he's gonna get the boat out of there. That area of the harbor is really shallow, for basically all the way out to the yacht clubs. I don't see any salvage company wanting to bring a boat in close enough to haul it off the beach, at the risk of grounding their own tug.

The boat probably weighs 3500-6000lbs ballpark, so a powerboat with a rope isn't going to cut it.

The other option is a truck with a crane or something, but a sandy beach provides a terrible foundation, so that doesn't seem possible either.

I wonder what his fine was when he got charged by the city, depending which law they cited, it could be a $10k fine.

GREAT photoshop. Makes carson

GREAT photoshop. Makes carson beach look like the skeleton coast (Namibia-google image it) which is the most beautifully creepy thing I have ever seen....

My house is about a half mile from there and I know from experience that I could get my boat in there at high tide. I don't know who he is, but I would certainly give him a tow if he asked nicely!!!
