Comming  back to middle harbour from a weekend on the Hawkesbury, came across a (looks like) 40 + ft Sunseeker on the rocks at Grotto point.

Any one know the story?

Yeh, the captain made a very expensive mistake :whistling:

 

Could have broken from a mooring or from anchor, whatever the story it hurts just looking at it!

Best guess, high tide, cut the corner a tad close, tide goes out, that's the result.

From memory years ago a famous hair stylist put his supercharged  boat on long reef & a well known game fisher parked his vessel between the pole marker & kirribilli house opposite the opera house 😜

the first picture was featured on tonights news, id guess bad weather , rough sea, high tide, whoops, got stuck, poop.

second photo looks like it broke a mooring and got eventually washed up

It was still here yesterday morning on our way out .... and coming back mid afternoon ...   a couple of tug boats and crane barges were heading in that direction though.

Seems endemic!

Another one on the rocks at Fig Tree point!

This is a common occurrence here. At high tide the starboard marker is around 50m from shore and it can blend in with the bush across the bay, LOTS of boats don't see it and bingo !!!

I read or heard somewhere that the Grotto Point incident, the boat was being driven at the time by a woman in her 80’s. 

Can’t find anything to confirm or negate.   Appears to have taken an expensive short cut.
