Whoops! Yacht Owner Makes a Costly Mistake & Gets Stuck on California Breakwall

Let the above video be a lesson to all yacht owners, because getting your vessel stuck on a breakwall and having to be rescued by the U.S. Coast Guard might be a tad embarrassing. According to NBC, Raffy Lopez and his family were cruising around the Oakland-Alameda Estuary last Sunday when they got stuck on a breakwall (which are created to protect the coastline from waves). The best part about it all is that the boat is named Gotcha, which is just so darn fitting. Gotcha was towed off on Monday morning and though Lopez assured NBC that he will continue boating after repairs (of which there will be many), he certainly won’t be returning to the estuary for a long time.
