Hey, You Scratched My Anchor

Published on August 26th, 2018

San Diego, CA (August 26, 2018) – A sailboat was dismasted this afternoon when it collided with the USS Midway Museum in San Diego Bay. Harbor Police said any damage to the historic aircraft carrier was “minor” and there were no reported injuries.

“I don’t think he realized how tall his mast was and he was too close to the boat and it was too late,” said Craig Wiener, who was inside the museum at the time of the crash. “My kids were looking out the window saying, ‘Hey dad, there’s a big boat coming at us.’ And with that, we heard a big crash.”

On the Facebook page for SD Captains, they report how the boat hit the port side catapult end unit on the carrier.
