More than likely just the cost to bring her up and tow charges..

The water's so smooth down their right now it has a tendency to lull you into a false sense of security which can get you in trouble in the blink of an eye....

I second the recommendation about taking the Tres Martin course if your running a high performance boat "V" or "Cat"...I took it this year to get insured in my new Cat and it was a very good course and opened my eyes to some things that people often do which can lead to disaster... Glad no one was hurt, boats can be repaired or replaced...
