Expensive powerboat, that's a shame. Fix it and move forward. That's all you can do at this point.

Any report on the extent (total) of the damage yet?

I noticed the RH prop had been pulled off the shaft and the back of the case had dragged, wouldn't that mean a whole new lower?

I guess it would be alright so long as what we can see is the extent of the damage. I hope nothing has broken in the drive uppers or transom!

Poor owner, it would be tragic getting a phonecall from a trucking company saying, "Um sir, you better get over here, we've had an 'incident' you could say, but I'm okay! You have insurance right??"

My condolences to the owner.

Its one thing to be the owner, but imagine being the driver? Im pretty sure if I was towing that rig and had that happen Id have a stroke in the middle of a massive heart attack.
