"Rogue" or didn't see/anticipate ? Seems the bigger the boat, the more fearless we become.
I can't imagine the feeling w/a 70 footer.
Very sad.

That is awful. Amazing the power of mother nature. I wonder where he was on the boat that it swept him out. Two tragic incidents involving water taking those close to this gentleman. I would be staying high and dry if I were that gentelman at this point.

What's it looking like?

BTW - this was a very custom boat(as all Mystics are). I know that the whole roof goes up and down due to the fact that the boat needs to go under some bridges on its way back to its home. Maybe the windshield does the same.

No visble signs of damage. I was far away though. It's pretty impressive looking.
