Re: My Horror Story

There are a lot of things that could be said, but the important part is you're alive and well (albeit stressed) and you've still got your boat.
And the sun will still come up tomorrow.

One thing that puzzles me is the lack of performance under power, disregarding the running away. How long has it been since your bottom was cleaned, particularly the prop? It doesn't take long to foul the bottom in those waters, and it doesn't take much fouling to ruin the boat's performance. Just a little bit of growth on the prop can affect the performance under power.

Good luck to you.
