BJM,

Not to pry and feel free not to answer. Did he say at all what happened?

This has to be devistating for him and all involed with Pantera.

We have amended the thread to remove the word Fatal as we do not want to jinx any possibility that the young man is found. Let's all pray that there is a miracle.

I'm sure in time Jo will give details of what happen. Short story- They hit something in the water and rolled up on the right rub rail. There is damage to the left skeg from whatever they hit(manate,log whatever) It was an accident and he is way bummed out right now. His thoughts are with the kid who is missing and their family. Jo is a very proud individual who takes his boats and customers very serious. Jo needs our support.

As BJM indicates. The bottom line is the boat did definetly hit something submerged in the water as the skeg was damaged on the port motor, which caused the boat to roll up on on its rub rail. I spoke to Jo last night for a while and inspected the boat up close myself. Let's keep our prayers for the missing person and for Jo.

Jo, Pepe, Linda, sorry to hear about this. My thoughts are with you. I haven't seen you guys in a while. Hang in there. It's a tough one, I have been there. I won't be down for a while yet, but if there is anything I can do, I'll be there. MB

I agree 105... Whatever they hit broke the skeg on one of the motors. At that time it was getting dark so they most likely just didn't see what they hit. It's very unfortunate and scary to think it could happen to any of us.
