Boat wrecked off US in 2014 found… on Scottish island

The barnacle-covered wreck of a catamaran abandoned during a rescue off the US east coast three years ago has been found on a Hebridean beach.

The four crew members of the Be Good Too were rescued by the US Coastguard 300 miles (482.8km) off the coast of Virginia on 14 January 2014. The boat came ashore on the west side of South Uist.

The crew of Be Good Too encountered stormy weather three days after leaving a marina in Jersey City: the crew was airlifted to safety by a coastguard helicopter. South Uist-based photographer JF Martin found the wreck on the beach.
