    Sad. It looked to be in pretty good condition before this event.

        I’m guessing that it is flying a Tacoma Yacht Club burgee.

            According to the Edmonds Beacon the "Hideaway" will be removed today.
            Heres an article that tells the story.

              I really hate to judge but I'm guessing he didn't have the proper scope out on his anchor rode or had poor anchor tackle. Sometimes I see people who know how and know better when anchoring but they are too lazy to let out what they need for scope or like shoes. Spend lots of money on boat, cheap out on the anchor gear.
              A ferry wake should not have loosened his anchor that is why we put out 7 to 1 scope. Lesson learned for him I hope. Also I have scuba dived that area and there are some crazy current flows there as the case with pretty much all Puget sound
              Too bad looked like it was a nice old wooden boat.

                I agree yachtman, and it was a poor place to anchor for the night to begin with. He could have moored in the marina just a literal stone throw away

                  Sad story. I wish him well.

                  When he says "...slipped [his] anchor..." That generally means that it
                  was let go at the boat end. Doesn't usually mean the anchor dragged.
                  Poorly tied knot? Wonder what caused the scaffold accident. Another
                  knot issue?

                    A good reminder of how important learning to ANCHOR properly is.

                      Edmonds Yacht Club Commodore Jim Whitehead called the Commodore at Tacoma Yacht Club and learned that “Hidaway” had belonged to a TYC member, but the boat had been sold and a burger was inadvertently left on the boat. The TYC Commodores understanding was that the new owner then put some $50,000 in new engines in the boat.

                        Its pretty easy to armchair skipper but someone reading this may avoid a similar fate. We spent 6 years on the left coast with our 43 Defever. The very first thing I did after buying her was to upsize the anchor. I didn't like the Bruce that was hanging on her so I bought a heavier CQR which was better than the Bruce but still more or less useless in a blow. Eventually we found a big Super Sarca and from then on we slept well. I can't count the number of stupid anchoring episodes we watched. There's only one way to do it right - drop the hook, back down, put some power on, watch to see if you move. If you move, pull the anchor and repeat. More often than not what we observed was that someone would drop the anchor and break out a beer. I'll bet in 6 years I watched less than 10 skippers back down on their anchor what I could consider "properly". Its a wonder there aren't foundered boats littering the coast from Anchorage to Tacoma. I think pretty well any anchor can work if its heavy enough and set properly. The new gen anchors let you use something lighter and probably set a little quicker but as long as you drop it, back down on it and hold against power you are not likely to end up as this poor sap did with wet feet and a busted boat.

                        One thing we certainly noticed is that there is a tremendous difference in bottom. Sometimes you get big flat kelp that you can't get the anchor to penetrate or some kind of underwater turf grass that the anchor just wants to skip across. In popular anchorages you often find really sloppy mud that won't hold jack until the anchor has had time to dive deep enough to find something more solid. Once in a while you find nice heavy clay mud where the anchor just locks up, the chain goes bar straight and the whole boat shudders as it stops. That doesn't happen very often but if you don't back down you'll never know the difference. Some kind of anchor alarm would also have kept this guy's feet from getting wet although I'm not a big fan of using technology to overcome technique. Better to anchor right in the first place.
