    Well, this turned out to be a bad day for whomever was on this vessel! I talked to a lady in the harbormaster's office and she said that the vessel started taking on water and they ran it as fast as they could to the spit to keep it from sinking. She said it is a newer vessel and they think it was a stress fracture that caused it. It definitely won't be cheap to refloat this beast.

    The tides are going uphill too...that'll make it special....probably swamped the engine room already anyway.

    I think that's the ship from this ADN story I read yesterday.

    Guess I would rather be hard aground on the spit than at the bottom of ocean.
