UPDATE: It's back in the bay. The beached boat is back afloat at a mooring at the head of Pleasant Bay.

Last week this 25-26 foot sailboat lay on the beach, left there by the recent storm's high tide.

The owner, a local carpenter named Don Savage, tried to bring it around to moor in Ryder's Cove.

But the tide was out, so he dropped anchor off the Pleasant Bay beach on Route 28 near the Harwich-Chatham town line earlier this week, and before the near hurrican winds on Monday.

The result was what you see in these photo I took this morning.

Amazingly there was no damage to the boat, and it sits there awaiting a new owner.

Don says he's too busy right now to find a good mooring for it, and that $5,000 will take it away.

Below is a photo taken Wednesday morning as Don checks the boat and found no damage, Interested buyers may contact the Harwich Harbormaster for more information.
