This Nova Scotia style lobster boat lies beached in the soft sand south of the West Island Causeway. Strong southerly winds over 26 knots (Oct 13, 2009) caused the vessel to drift to the soft sanded beach This clip also shows the inside of the wheelhouse and gear in the waist. High tide at 430 this afternoon with northwesterly winds may be a good time to try to free it. The vessel ran aground before the high southerly winds arrived. Apparently the Nova Scotia style lobster boat 's mooring chain became dislodged., and had nothing to do with the strong winds! This is the famous lobster boat on YouTube from the December 12, 2008 storm! http://www.westislandweather.com/apps/videos/videos/view/1510067-west-island-lobster-boat-in-storm NOW...AT 11 AM...SHOWERS LIKELY.
