George Bush Sr. Needs Navigation Lessons
President George H. W. Bush was found grounded near his home in Kennebunkport, ME. Fidelity IV, his 38 ft Fountain Center Console, was grounded after a wave push his boat onto the beach and low tide was approaching, stranding his boat on Gooch's Beach for several hours on Monday.
1. Charts. Charts. Charts. - They're a good thing to have and look at.
2. Stay away from beaches before low tide?
No one was hurt but according to the former president's personal aide, Jim Appleby, the boat sustained some minor damage but was still in running condition after they got it off the beach Monday evening.
I also found this video of the former president having a navigation fight with the dock. Damn swells!
