It's not by Karakter, It's at the other end, past Beachside Villas and El Zafiro.

Looking at that webcam live, I worry it's going to break apart and sink right there... The waves are really pounding it..

Private group or you have to be a friend to see it?

And it is because it is not a public post, it is a private group or you have to be a friend of the person to see it. SXMScubaman does not understand that, again.

It's not a private group but a friend of ours and a Facebook friend of ours. I do understand private group restraints on Facebook since you questioned me. Sorry if it doesn't work for you as it is a very good close up video.

Different view on the webcam now, although if you know where to look, you can see it's there..

It's visible from SBR (with help) and it's not a small ship. Presently lengthwise on the rocks being battered by decent waves. Attempt (2nd) to remove was scheduled for 5pm Monday (Daily Herald) but I bet that was postponed because of strong winds. Thunder and heavy rain for the last our this am which hopefully could be the end of the front...hopefully.

There is also a yacht aground in Nettle Bay...shallow water preventing removal for now

If the rain stops we are going to walk Simpson Bay Beach and I'll try to get a pic....but it's not near the beach at all...seems to be at least halfway to the southern end of rocks

Pic taken from SBR condo miles away so quality is a bit lacking but you get the idea....(also not too confident on my pic attachment skills)

Thanks, good shot. Looks like it needs some attention soon. My understanding is there are no motors on the boat so any movement will have to be by way of towing.

boucharda--great shot and no problem with the picture attachment! It really is easy.

It is up against the cliffs there at Beacon Hill, not on the beach. Hopefully they will be able to tow it away soon.

According to the DH story, the owner says there is no damage to the vessel and they expect to be able to tow it away today.

I missed that reported Tuesday potential attempt BUT as you see in the Herald pic from Monday the ship was pointing at the rocks and today it is sideways against the rocks with surf breaking over the deck...should be interesting AND the weather is no better, actually worse, than on Monday

Ok, regarding the weather for today. Guess they were wrong that it was supposed to be better today. Yesterday afternoon, the ship was sideways, yes. Hope they are able to get it off.

Maybe has to be seen by an insurance adjuster before removal. Could be anyone of many reasons.

Hopefully the responsible owner has enough money to get it pull away or the Gov does it ASAP. Otherwise next high seas it could end up in Beachside Villas living room. Did anyone else not think that boat was a accident waiting to happen??
