Down She Goes
From the Reno Gazette Journal: Lake Tahoe’s largest noncommercial yacht sank to the bottom of the Tahoe Keys Marina on Monday morning.
The Sierra Rose was 85.7 feet and 222 gross tons.
Noises of the boat’s sinking started at about 3 a.m. Monday, said Tony Michalak, who lives in a townhouse about 50 yards from where the boat was docked.
By 7 a.m. when he woke, the boat had hit bottom, he said.
Other neighbors said they heard screeching noises late-Sunday evening.
The mere size of the vessel kept it from completely sinking. Its third floor remained above water Monday. A big screen TV, leather couches and floating slices of bread could be seen inside the luxury liner that included three bedrooms, three bathrooms, http://www.rgj.com/article/20120709/NEWS/120709025/Luxury-yacht-sinks-Lake-Tahoe?odyssey=tab|topnews|text|FRONTPAGE
