Shipwrecked on Playa Del Rey, CA
She washed up onto the shore a few weeks ago after a storm ran her aground.
She was stripped within the first couple of days.
The 75 foot boat came ashore about 4:30 a.m. Feb. 27 after the first of two storms hit Southern California. While owners are normally responsible for removal of such vessels, in this case it looks like state taxpayers are going to take over.
The Captain awoke to his bow dragging anchor. His attempts to start the ships engines were unsuccessful, and before responding rescue units could arrive, his vessel went aground in heavy seas.
The wood floors still look decent.
The KEEP OUT signs don’t appear to be working.
You can reenact your Titanic fantasies here.
The three occupants of the powerboat, along with 3 dogs, were assisted by responding Marina del Rey Sheriff’s rescue boat deputies and Los Angeles County Lifeguards.
Well at least she went out with a bang.
