Exactly what happen when a blade launched on our boat. Sudden vibration.

In the first picture it sure looks like the blade to the right has a crack on the trailing edge. From the looks of the slung blade, the crack initiated on the trailing edge and propagated forward about a half inch before it let go all at once.
