Yes, JonB, it was a motorboat.
The story is that they dropped a peice of gear overboard, made a quick turn to recover it, and didn't clear WS right after.
Thanks Barry, I'll see you in the water. Maybe we'll get out on WS after I patch the hole. (Not really confident in the tape)
I did feel a little sick on my way down there.
Thank you all for your support.
I had a boatbuilder look at it today.
The splinters make great props for this story at the bar.
