Photos: Waiting for water

The 95-foot luxury charter yacht “Caledonia” sits aground in Gastineau Channel on the Douglas Beach directly across from the cruise ship docks on Saturday. Registered in Ketchikan but docked out of Seattle, Capt. Bob Stephens said they had been anchored for a couple days in 50-feet of water and didn’t think the minus tide would leave them stranded. “I have been coming up here for 13 years,” Stephens said. “I guess the 13th really was unlucky.” The vessel floated with the incoming tide and appeared to suffer no damage. The Caledonia also features an aluminum yacht tender for sport fishing, kayaks, wet bar and dining seating for eight, two queen bed staterooms and two singles with full bathrooms, and a hot tub. Stephens is a 200-ton Coast Guard Licensed Captain and was also a U.S. Air Force Navigator.
