Oh man this is awful! Where is the "I don't like" button when you need it.
As a recovering wooden boat owner this story gives me chills. I've been in a storm and cracked a garboard and started taking on water before. Almost lost the boat. I've also had my boat in a recently refitted condition and seen the bilge pumps working overtime just because the planks were "working". I'm going to go and kiss my overly thick fiberglass hull next time I'm aboard.
Thoughts and prayers go out to those who are lost and missing.
