That Waldport cruiser is stuck again. Waiting for high tide to free it.

A cabin cruiser that suffered engine failure a week or so ago off the Jaws of Waldport, and had to be towed in by Central Coast Fire and Rescue, is back in hot…er…cold water again.

Folks aboard the 24-foot cruiser were said to be doing a little crabbing north of the Alsea River outlet when the engine quit running, again. The craft drifted south until it ran aground at the south edge of the jaws. Late this afternoon it appeared that there were at least two aboard drinking soda pop and muching on potato chips, obviously in no hurry to go anywhere, not that they could. However, waiting for high tide will mean they’ll be stuck there until the wee hours of Wednesday morning before they can get free of the beach, assuming they can get the motor started again. It appears they left the dogs at home, this time.

The Coast Guard and Central Coast Fire and Rescue know they’re there.

Our thanks to the Cliff House for the photographic vantage point.
