The Seattle Times has this photo of yesterday’s grounding near the Shilshole entrance buoy. That’s a tempting bit of water to cross. Heck, viagra approved I do it all the time in my boat, remedy which draws less than two feet! I think I would avoid it in a keelboat, medstore however.

A sailboat is grounded at low tide Thursday, May 19. 2011 off Ray’s Boathouse near Shilshole Marina in Seattle about 1/4 mile from shore.

By the way, don’t believe the caption in today’s Seattle Times. I think somebody got their USCG press releases mixed up. I guarantee that Coast Guard Sector Columbia River did NOT send a 25-foot response boat from Cape Disappointment station, and the sailboat did NOT head back to Astoria, Ore.
