Presumably, but I dunno, didn't get far into the forensics, we were too busy trying to get a stupidly heavy length of cable up to the surface and off the anchor.
Friend of mine always keeps an angle grinder with zip cut disk and inverter on board, just in case, for old log boom detritus along the coast here...he managed to snag a big cable several years ago and managed to get it close to the surface and cut it off the anchor with a grinder...

Seems like it would be easier to tie the cable off with some scrap line, unhook the anchor, and cut the line? That's how I dropped a 150lb danforth for a mooring buoy once.

What dinghy is that? Looks like it is strip planked and nicely built. Is the bilge water to keep it from blowing off the dock?
I think it's the dinghy to Hoi An, a 50' lightweight daysailer/racer, and occasional overnighter.

This is also a dinghy for Hoi An, and the dinghy in question in the last post (I now discover!), is in fact the dinghy for the dinghy.

I’ve been slowly making progress on restoring this boat. Not sure if I like the satin white interior or the trim paint in the topsides. I’ll see if I get used to it after I re-varnish the brightwork, spars  and oars.

Kris, I love the colors in that photo. I couldn't help from running it through a little photo filter of sorts to get this,

     If I like the results I get with this simple app, I then take it to Photoshop for further mucking around. What name should I give credits to for the photograph?

My tack attaches to the mast. I just used this as a quick visual reference and I did notice the forward tack and hoped I could sneak by, but nope! Good eye!!

Nice! Tom Young Design
How 'bout crediting Bob Stephens / Paul Waring for penning those beautiful lines...where does it stop? :p

What I think is most striking about that boat is it's proportions and scale in sailboat design.

Specifically; 50' long X 11.5 wide X 17,500 lbs. That's what makes it look so right to my eye.
