Very high and dry

Posted: Tuesday, August 21, 2001

The 60-foot sailboat Dreadnought sits high and dry after running aground on a shoal in Rocky Pass, about 27 miles southwest of Petersburg, on Saturday.

The hull of the Dreadnought is suspended well above the shoal following its grounding on Saturday. The crew aboard the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Elderberry assisted the five sailors on the Dreadnought, a New Zealand vessel, and escorted them out of Keku Strait at high tide.
