Hope it didn't hurt the whale.

One BloBoat down, millions to go.

Tuff bote.

I bet the time from start of breach till the whale hit the boat was MAYBE two seconds. A pro throttleman MIGHT have reacted fast enough, but the shock of seeing the whale would probably have frozen his muscles. Even Mongo's Magic Throttle Arm would've been too slow.

Cat,

I was kidding. You know my sense of humor. Are you having a bad day?

Plus, if the boat was propped for top speed than low-end acceleration would have been compromised, so even the best throttleman on the planet wouldn't have stood a chance.

But I digress.
