Life in FAILboat Bay

If you haven’t been following my Twitter feed (why aren’t you following my Twitter feed?), you may have missed the picture from FAILboat Bay over the last two weeks. For some reason, the small bay right next to my house has accumulated derelict boats over the winter. Vacationers tend to leave their boats moored over the winter and assume nothing will happen to them during the 9 months they’re abandoned. Of course, anything can happen to a boat over 9 months, and most tend to not be well anchored to begin with. Here is a selection of some of my favorite FAILboats from the last 2 week.

No one can guess which boat will be aground on any given day, but rarely do we get three at once. Can you spot the ultimate FAILboat?

These two like to alternate running aground, often being pulled back out right before salvage laws take effect.

If you’re goal is to make sure the boat won’t drift away, then this captain wins.

You can’t see it from this angle, but this FAILboat is tied to a telephone pole.

Yes, Admiral FAILboat lives year-round on this custom house boat.

    While wandering through FAILboat Bay today, I found a shiny new boat hook washed up in the marsh.
