Pft. That's nothing. I took out an entire dock piling trying to get into a slip. The guys on the patrol with me decided to take some of the wood and make it into a necklace...which they presented to me in front of our local Coast Guard brass. In my defense, the piling was rotten through and through and a bird landing on it would have had the same result. Probably.

What doesn't sink your boat or kill you (or anyone else) is a Learning Experience. It's just nice when the Learning Experience is covered by your insurance.

Good luck with your boat and I hope to meet you when you're back in the area.
