Former Billy Joel boat sinks in Connecticut

Posted on

A 35-foot yacht once owned by Billy Joel sank at a Connecticut marina over the weekend.

Hub Orr, of Stamford, Conn., the boat’s current owner, had left Sea Major at Riverscape Marina in Cos Cob for repair work during the winter, according to a report in the Connecticut Post.

Orr said the boat – built in 1985 by Wilbur Yachts of Southwest Harbor, Maine – had recently been inspected and commissioned. He was waiting for a weather window to take Sea Major to a marina in Stamford, Conn.

    What a shame. This vessel was proberly Hub Orr’s pride and joy. The inspection at commissioning time must have missed a faulty fitting, hose or clamp to cause the vessel to sink. The bilge pump can only de-water as long as it has battery power to supply it. No high water alarm system? I hope that it can be refitted to Orr’s satisfaction. I would think he’s going to miss this boating season while repairs are made. Good Luck

Is the decision to move the Miami show to the Miami Marine Stadium a good one?
