Classic American Cruiser Ends Aground in Port Angeles

A fourteen meter flybridge cruiser named m/y Eudora washed aground in the North side of Ediz Hook, Port Angeles, Washington on 1730 of Wednesday fifteen September.  The classic explorer cruiser was recently bought in auction from a 51 year old, and three hours into its delivery ended without fuel, which ultimately washed her ashore. The following morning m/y Eudora was inspected by the Coast Guard for environmental damage, with the fuel tanks empty, and remaining oil drained by the officers, this hazard was removed.  At some point the Port Angeles Coast Guard did try to tow out the flybridge cruiser, with no success the situation returning into the hands of the owner.  Ultimately m/y Eudora ended up being destroyed into pieces and becoming a wreck.
M/y Eudora is a Trojan 42 FBMY model produced from 1965 up to 1972.  The Trojan 42 FBMY was build of wood and offered a two double cabins layout, with an owners cabin located aft and raised saloon living area in between the cabins.  The Trojan 42 was also offered as MY without a flybridge, and evolved into the F-44, fiberglass construction and a lightly different upper structure look in 1974.
