Scuttlebutt Photos: Tough day in Padanaram, MA - October 28, 2006
Photos and video submitted by Tom Kenney
The photos and video taken from Smith Neck Road two hours after high tide. Vessel ROBIN hard aground with three more vessels aground in the distance.
Update - Nov 15, 2006: ROBIN is now at the Concordia Yard on Gulf Road, South Dartmouth, MA. The photos below were taken by David Hall, who's son Christian - a graduate of the International Yacht Restoration School (IYRS) in Newport, RI - will likely be doing the work. It took Concordia a day to pump out the mud, stone, and debris that had accumulated inside the hull. The owner said to total ROBIN if the engine was "shot", but miraculously she started on the first try. Looks like 40 planks and some sections of the keel need to be replaced. - Tom Kenney
