I am not sure what kind of engine problems they had but when we went out and looked at the boat on Sunday the prop was covered with barnicles. On that leg of their trip they would have been fighting head winds and current. They were not very far from the Hampton roads bridge tunnel. If they had turned and ran with the wind they could have probably made it back to willoghby bay. but I was not the one making the call. Little creek would have been to tough of a trip after Friday afternoon. The boat did not look to bad for the grounding but I could not see side that was burried in the sand.
