A hard lesson learned

The winds were predicted to swing out of the north here at Bahia Honda and turn the Anchorage into a Lee shore so we took shelter inside the marina. Lucky we did because the wind got up to gale force and several boats dragged including the boat anchored next to us.
At first glance it looks OK but this is actually an impossible situation to be in for the boat. If the boat stays there it will beat itself to death and if it is towed out, its hull will be breached on the rocks and it will sink. So the state of Florida is getting involved, to decide where they want the boat sunk.

There by the grace of God go I.
