Tiburon Flotsam

February 20, 2017

This winter's wind and rain has played havoc on the Sausalito anchor-outs, and many of their boats have fetched up on the Tiburon shore. Here is a Dead Boat Society gallery gathered since January.


A pretty Pearson. It was towed out on the next high tide. Hopefully it was reunited with its owner or at least a new one. ©2017 norcalsailing.com

Also remarkable is the quantity of accessories washed up on the shore. Life jackets, flotation cushions, hatch boards, planks, fuel jugs, buckets, coolers, odd bits of Styrofoam, and unidentifiable pieces of plastic abound — not to mention dinghies, kayaks and other tenders.

Dory
Maybe the only way to get off your boat before big winds. Hopefully the owner was safe ashore. ©2017 norcalsailing.com

Powerboat
On February 7, this wooden classic was spotted with a hole below the waterline along her starboard beam, and her bow was leaking fuel. She's still there. ©2017 norcalsailing.com
