such a sad story, I can't imagine what the father and the young girl must be going through, my heart goes out to them.

Since the boat had just been purchased and it was older I wonder if a survey had been done

Sonic, I wouldn't look at this as a cause. There's as much support there as on most boat lifts and trailers.

Sonic, I am not looking to start any kind of debate on a terrible issue like this but to me it appears to have failed much further foward of the point you are reffering to. It almost looks like it snapped right at the first bulkhead by the registration #s.
This is a terrible accident and I don't mean any disrespect to anyone so I won't speculate on anything else.
