Saw them being towed in from the inlet this morning with the hatch up by a sport fishing boat. The boat was floating fine, so it may have been a mechanical issue.

It should be fun to see how the boatless crowd spins the drivers' responsibility into a manufacturer defect.

That's good to hear.

Mother Ocean is the queen: if you go boating enough, no matter how careful, she will bite you from time to time.

very lucky... chalk it up to just an "accident"

wonder if it was dragged off or the tide helped...

but I do ask this.. how do you hit a wave wrong and end up that far in?
