Beach of Broken Dreams

Mom always said, Don’t leave your toys out in the rain. That’s especially the case if your toy is a $150,000 46-foot sailboat, and it’s your place of residence, your business, and you don’t have insurance on it. We were all a bit surprised to see this shipwreck appear in our front yard just before the holidays after it broke anchor and ran aground in severe weather. Once the cabin filled with water and sand it became too heavy for boats to tug it off the beach. Owner Larry Beane, who had dreamed of sailing around the world, then suffered the further pain of seeing looters and graffiti punks go to town on the boat. Meanwhile county officials scratched their heads for several weeks before coming up with this solution:

We hope Captain Larry has a better year in 2009!
