I have no idea which rocks they hit or what course they were steering.

A straight course from Camden harbor(known departure port) and Pulpit harbor(supposed destination) puts you right through the rocks NE of Goose Rock. Maybe their chart plotter had the detail filtered out when selecting the range to include both harbors. Maybe they did not zoom in to an adequate range to show that detail and also traced their route to ensure there were no obstructions.

This a only a guess and only the crew of that boat know exactly what happened.
