Naw. The Cig is still in the water. It didn't get past the 1st tree.

The Fountain, on the other hand, DID.

Actually, I saw the Cig, and it DID snap some nice sized cypress trees. I was impressed.

Anyone notice that all of the boat wreck pics on this thread are stepped hull vees that spun out?















Popcorn anyone?
