    I was watching the attempted salvage of this crabbing boat that had broken loose from its mooring in the recent storm.

    Just before picture 1 was taken, there was a log in the sand just below the boat. The salvager had apparently decided that the log had to be sawn apart, and he had a chainsaw with a bar that was about four feet long. He'd wait for a lull in the waves, jam the tip of the chainsaw in the sand, start it up, run out, start sawing, then run back when the wave came in. Barefoot.

    After the next wave, the log was gone.

    I don't know whether the boat was salvaged or not. I wouldn't be surprised if that portable crane is lost too.
