Shipwreck


S WIND 15 KT DECREASING TO 10 TO 15 KT AFTER DARK.
WIND WAVES 2 FT.
W SWELL 5 FT AT 11 SECONDS.

Sometimes I wish that there still regular shipwrecks on the Oregon coast...especially if they'd produce peaks off the bow like this one!

Up early. In the water by about 8am. Caught some fun rights off a well known cape. Waves weren't anything too special..still, very surprising that there were only 3 others in the water. Tide came in about 10am and the waves mushed out. Went looking later in the afternoon for the left that started firing on Tuesday to no avail. Saw a guy give it a go at the same spot, but it was close out after close out.

I wonder if the New Carissa ever had (has? is it still there?) anything like that pealing down her?

yeah, as the saying goes - one mans trash is another's treasure.. or something like that.

there was a shipwreck on south beach miami when i was a kid, and produced a similar wedge, only smaller. i think i remember signing a petition to have the boat left there...lol
