Did it flip off the trailer or what? A low bridge? Collision?

It looks like a rollover of some type.

to me that looked like body impact against the windsheild - also the way the bolster is crushed. - doesn't look like a good saturday afternoon spin in the harbor.

Id say the trailer went over. The gouges on the top by the rear hatch could either be from a stap or where they grabbed it w/ the tow truck to right it.
Either way a reeeaallllyy bad day.

Nah, the seats would have been torn up.

I'd say a bridge closed on it and pushed it straight down until the bridge went back up.

Very strange damage.

Id buy the bridge idea except for the skeg on the drive is broken.
Maybe the water was very shallow.

We almost got squashed years and years ago in a 1970's something Dolphin. The boat had awful shifting problems and we were trying to hold our position in front of a railroad bridge in the Pt Pleesant inlet. Boat stalled and the rip started pulling us right into the bridge..pretty bad. Then we hear the, ding ding ding, oh sh!t!!! Like a big monster trying to bite us. Although I was young and it probably remember it to be worse than it was I bet I could pass a lie detector test it was within inches. Ron P Im sure you know the bridge well.

My guess is a mishap at a rack storage place--either the boat above it fell or a forklift came down on it or the forklift dropped a boat on it. Something like that.
