Arrow 42 Fountain Bravo 1 Broke in Half

This is a pick of My buddys 42 Fountain. He said he thinks he hit something There is not a mark on the bottom of the hull or any damage to the other skeg or prop.Some of the studs are sheered off and pulled out.I bet he could of stoped and walked over and picked up the lower

He said he was coming off plane in Joes Bayou,Destin,FL

I guess you're saying that it happened while trailering; if so going around a corner and hitting a center median or curb would explain it - no damage to trailer, hull or other drive. Also the turning velocity of the drive with the axle(s) being the pivot point imparts a lot more force to what's being pivoted (the drive). Keep us posted. -Jeff
