Last year at Point Pleasant (Ortley Beach) the AMF Outer Limits blew the bottom off a #6-everything was gone below the cavitation plate

I blew two #6's but it was due to the front nose cone coming lose and allowing water into the case. Finally had to replace the lower casing.

Nope, no spin out, just running. And there were no marks on th hull, so I don't think they hit something, just blowed it up-with T53 turbines of course
