Fierce winter storm grounds boats across Hawaii

Fierce winter storm grounds boats across Hawaii
News from Hawaii News Now:

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) and several of its divisions responded to reports of at least six vessels adrift or grounded, as a result of a short, but severe winter storm on Jan. 2 and 3.

A 75-foot, 84-ton sailing ketch, Hawaii Aloha ran aground in the wave zone fronting the Four Seasons Hualalai Resort on Hawaii Island, Friday night. The boat’s captain and three crew members managed to get off before it grounded. The search for a fifth crew member is continuing. Staff from the DLNR Divisions of Aquatic Resources (DAR) and Boating and Ocean Recreation (DOBOR), are working with salvage and insurance companies to develop a salvage and wreckage removal plan for the Hawaii Aloha. Interim DLNR Chairperson Carty Chang said, “We want to exercise great care in removing this boat, as it still contains more than 500 gallons of diesel fuel and is resting in a position that could cause environmental damage. The plans we’re working on currently will take into consideration all factors to minimize any further damage to fragile natural resources.”

A 45-foot sail boat, Kanua Kai, ran aground atop the reef fronting the Cheeseburger in Paradise Restaurant on Front Street in Lahaina, Maui. DOBOR worked with the owner and the boat’s insurer to remove this vessel. DLNR was invo…………… continues on Hawaii News Now

Open Season: Important tips for healthy waterfowl hunting in boats

Open Season: Important tips for healthy waterfowl hunting in boats
News from SouthCoastToday.com:

Wednesday will mark the anniversary of the tragic and fatal duck hunting accident on the Westport River on Jan. 7 of last year, when two men died and one survived. For those waterfowlers who brave the elements in small boats in the dead of winter, it’s a sobering thought.

Winter gunning for ducks and geese on the water is a time-honored tradition — launching duck boats and setting out decoys before dawn, and ducks on the wing silhouetted against a spectacular sunrise — are all part of the experience but it’s not without dangers. Even the most experienced outdoorsmen can “get caught in it.”

According to the most recent figures from the U.S. Coat Guard, hunters (and fishermen) have one of the highest boating fatality rates and open motor boats are involved in the highest number of boating fatalities out of all vessels. In 2013, boating accidents involving open motor boats resulted in 272 deaths, followed by canoes or kayaks with 109, pontoon boats and personal watercraft with 36 each, with cabin motorboats accidents resulting in 25 deaths.

Hazardous waters was the third leading contributing factor of boating accident deaths and of the 560 total boating fatalities in 2013 nationwide, 398 were due to drowning and 328 of those drowning victims…………… continues on SouthCoastToday.com

County orders removal of boats

County orders removal of boats
News from The Harlan Daily Enterprise:

Immediately after bringing a special called meeting of the Harlan Fiscal Court to order on Tuesday, Harlan County Judge-Executive Joe Grieshop made a motion to enter into executive session per KRS 61.810 (l) (c) personnel and litigation.

The only item on the agenda was Stone Mountain Boat Dock.

After approximately 30 minutes, the court was called back to order, at which time Grieshop immediately made a motion to “send notice to those with boats at the (Stone Mountain) boat dock, at Cranks Creek Lake, to remove their boats by Jan. 9, 2015” with no explanation as to why.

A roll call vote was taken, which resulted in a tie. Without any discussion, a motion was immediately made for another roll call vote at which time the tie was broken with a 4-3 vote. Harlan County Attorney Fred Busroe then instructed the court a motion had to be made to re-vote instead of voting on the original motion a second time. The vote was taken again, at which time the motion carried.

“The grounds for the motion and the second are that after the motion was made the first time it was locked up three to three so there was no resolve to the issue. So, a motion was made to re-vote to see if that changes anybody’s opinion. The second was made to it and now a roll call can be made,” Busroe instructed the court before a third roll call vote was taken.

“This is a tough…………… continues on The Harlan Daily Enterprise

Coast Guard searching for boat’s owner

Coast Guard searching for boat’s owner
News from Boston Herald:

The Coast Guard is looking for the owner of an unmanned sailboat that was found ashore on Martha’s Vineyard yesterday.

Officials say they received a call at about 10 p.m. last night for a 13-foot Hobi Cat “wave” model sailboat that was found washed ashore with the sail up and the rudder down.  It was reported to have lines hanging and dirty footprints on the deck.

Boat and air crews from the Coast Guard canvased the area for possible people in the water while local police searched houses to locate the owner.

“A case like this illustrates why it’s extremely important for folks to document their vessels and make them easily identifiable,” said Richard Elliott, the command duty officer at Sector Southeastern New England. “We have multiple crews searching the entire body of water from Naushon Island to Martha’s Vineyard – but we don’t have any additional information about the vessel or its owner.”

Anyone with information about the boat or its owner is urged to call the Southeastern New England Command Center at 508-457-3211.

New law takes aim at derelict boats

New law takes aim at derelict boats
News from Insurance News Net:

By Tad Sooter, Kitsap Sun, Bremerton, Wash.
McClatchy-Tribune Information Services

July 04–When the century-old tugboat Chickamauga sank in Bainbridge Island’sEagle Harbor last winter, the public was left with an expensive mess.

The state Department of Natural Resources and U.S. Coast Guard spent tens of thousands of dollars to raise and remove the vessel. The state is prosecuting the owner, who didn’t have the Chickamauga insured.

Two new rule changes taking effect this summer will help prevent similar incidents. The laws, passed by the state Legislature in 2013 and 2014, place restrictions on the sale of boats that are longer than 65 feet and 40 years old or older.

Under the rules, the boat seller must provide the buyer with an independent inspection report detailing the condition of the vessel. If the inspection finds the boat is not seaworthy, and that the cost of repairs exceeds the value of the boat, the owner can only sell the vessel for scrap or to a licensed marine professional.

Meanwhile, the buyer of a long, old boat must purchase at least $ 300,000 in insurance coverage and show proof of insurance to the seller. The insurance requirement only…………… continues on Insurance News Net

Why Boats Sink: Ten best tips on prevention

Why Boats Sink: Ten best tips on prevention
News from Sail World:

She seemed okay when you left her, after that last happy day, but a phone call a couple of days later telling you she had sunk destroyed all your sailing dreams for a long time to come. In fact, it could be the end of her. That’s because repairs on a sunken boat – whether unattended or underway – often cost more than the actual value of the boat.

So if you want to prevent a sinking at all costs, what can you do? Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS), who, among their services to boat owners, offer insurance, are ideally placed to look at the reasons why unattended boats have sunk in the past.

BoatUS recently took its first significant look since 2006 at its boat insurance claims files and found that most sinkings were preventable. About two out of every three (69%) boats sink at the dock or mooring, while only the remainder (31%) sink while underway.

Of all of the dock/mooring sinkings, 39% occur when some small part gives up the fight with water due to wear, tear and corrosion. When it comes to gradual leaks due to slowly failing parts, too many boats existed in a ‘zombie state’ somewhere between floating and sinking, dependent upon the bilge pump, which merely postponed the sinking until the pump failed or was overwhelmed. This one is a no-brainer: lack of maintenance is the factor here.
