Well here is my "bummer" story. And it happened less that two weeks ago in Maine...in an anchorage... in an anchorage with "no wake" signs.
Here in Washington State, the Lobster boat operator would be liable for the damage to the boat and any injury to the crew. You would have had a couple of witnesses. Here the law is very clear on the matter. The problem is usually witnesses or documentation. Your local laws may be different.
