I met this poor guy John, who ran aground shortly after it happened. He had set anchor well off shore on his way down to Florida and gone to sleep, only to wake up in this spot. What made it worse was that it was during a super high tide and try as he might he and several others couldn’t get it floating again.
A couple of weeks later during our Spring Astro Workshop we ventured back to this spot and I was shocked and dismayed to see it still beached. Our group took full advantage and we got some nice images as the light from downtown Charleston made it shine in the dark.
I never saw them clearing it away but I heard that was it’s fate. Such a shame.
