Well, it does look like it's securely moored.

A bittersweet symphony...




Great pic, scrolling down gave me a laugh when I saw how it was parked. Wild weather or steering failure?


Oh, it's that one. Other photo angles are even more spectacular.

The bubble bow has kind of a Dali melted effect.

I used to call that bulge "the nose-poker" but was informed by a captain that it's known as the forepeak.

My regular ride to Newfoundland, the Blue Putees had a similar issue.

Fukushima Tsunami wreakage.

Not much of an oops. More of a blinding tragedy.

One thing I always say to myself when a docking situation is going bad...

"There's always a best corrective action, find it, and do it."

Sometimes though, the best corrective action looks like these pictures. ;)

"Wreakage." A spello I can live with.

And sometimes, like the perfect comeback line, the best corrective action occurs to you immediately after the situation is over.

Never approach a dock faster than you want to hit it.

Words to live by.

A rare one from me. I'll blame the tail end of my influenza.

Look at the damage to the starboard bow rail and the junk beside the road. That's the Fukushima tsunami.

And, to paraphrase Phil Bolger, sometimes all you can do is hope to find a soft spot on the lee shore.
