That caused a series of events.
The gun went off spraying the cabin with bullets. Fortunately none of the rounds hit below the waterline.
One round however ricocheted off the marble counter top and hit the switch on the new anchor windless releasing all 200 feet of line.
Due to the the waves the boat twisted around and the rode fouled the prop causing the engine to break its mounts immediately destroying the stern tube.

This of course caused the boat to sink and subsequently our death.

So while the Hunter did fall apart, it was due to a bad anchor, bull-dogs, marble counter tops and firearms.

Get your story straight.
Wouldn't of happened in a steel boat with high lifelines.
