September 16, 2016 – This was not us – it was the new owner of the Split Crow who got on the wrong side of the law

16 Sep

I just want to make this very clear – it was not us involved with Split Crow’s misadventure.  The new captain was arrested for BUI (boating under the influence) and the Split Crow was towed in to the harbour by the US Coast Guard.

As you know, we sold the Split Crow and the new owner left PEI in early June. He set sail with a crew of two others who got off the boat in Halifax and flew home (to Georgia I believe). The captain set sail from Halifax to the USA by himself. It was at this point that things went awry. We didn’t know anything about it until today. Someone sent us a link to a YouTube video. It was a bit disconcerting to see our boat being towed in to shore by the US Coast Guard and the captain being led away in handcuffs. Yikes!

Here is the video and a number of articles explaining the event. I am sorry to see our beautiful boat under these circumstances. The good news is that we had quite a number of hits to our blog, so I guess the captain created quite a stir! We don’t know anything else about the boat now – where it is and we don’t know what happened to the captain. I guess it will be a mystery… If anyone happens to know something about this, please let us know.
