A Chatham fisherman with more than 30 years of experience ran aground on a sand bar off the coast of Lighthouse Beach this morning. Captain Bruce Kaminski cited mechanical trouble for the failing to navigate the shoal at low tide. He was uninjured.
The 40 foot Never Enough was towed to shore by the Coast Guard and Harbormasters from Chatham and Harwich.
Our friends at the Cape Cod Times online produced this video of a tough day on the job for Kaminski.
Here is an excellent perspective of the U.S. Coast Guard boats docked and ready for patrol and rescues.
The second-story observation deck yields an hour-- at least, of entertainment. It's better than TV. While you wait for the next fishing boat to come in and unload, you can view the harbor, the open ocean beyond, shore birds, magnificent coastal homes, and....
....blubbery gray seals who feast on the leftovers thrown overboard, before becoming lunch for the great white sharks lurking on the other side of the sand bars.
