First, there was the jarring 3am phone call from our founder Brandon’s panic-stricken father, who heard crashing on the shore. Then, there was Brandon’s 45-minute drive over fallen debris and icy roads. And finally, the worst part was seeing their beloved 27′ Catalina, SV Inconceivable, beaten up on the beach with waves crashing on its hull.
Inconceivable had likely been on the beach for several hours at this point, given the state of the tides. By the time Brandon arrived, his father Ken was already on the scene and getting into his dry suit, ready to tackle the incoming waves. Without hesitation, Brandon slipped into his wetsuit and together they worked to winch the boat off of the beach.
After hours of arduous work, the vessel was dragged from the beach by using a secure mooring buoy and the boat’s manual winch. By sunrise, Inconceivable was successfully placed on a temporary mooring buoy, much to Brandon and Ken’s happiness – and exhaustion.
