While we were heading north toward Staniel Cay from Georgetown in the Exumas we passed a Cay with a sailboat beached on the shore. Both Captain Adam and I speculated on what it was doing there. It looked pretty intact from a distance. I thought perhaps the owner might have careened it on the beach to clean it's bottom. On our return south we anchored off a nearby Cay from where the beached boat was. I suggested that we take the dingy over to investigate. Adam was thinking the same thing. So that's what we did...
She still looked in pretty good shape no hull damage from what we could see:
Even had several large solar panels still attached:
Water jugs and a full jug of diesel were still in deck as was the air pump for an inflatable dingy:
There was some type of registration sticker from Florida that expires on September 2015
The boats name was Cimarron with a hailing port of Marathon Florida:
Looked like a sturdy blue water boat with the wind vane steering still attached on the stern:
The hatch was open and the lock secured to the hasp:
Captain Adam climbed on board to take a look inside and make sure no one was on board.
He reported things were pretty dry inside. A lot of clothes were thrown about but, the electronics seemed to be intact. Besides radar the boat also had a SSB antenna on the rear stay. Definitely not setup for just day sails. Still it was a mystery how it would up in this quiet Bahamian Cove in the Exumas and what happened to the person who sailed her?
