A Whale of a Tale

Anyone else read about the whale that wreaked havoc on a sailboat moored in Niue? It's theorized that a whale became tangled in a mooring and thrashed enough to really trash the bow on a Catalina 40. You can see pictures and read the details here and by following the link to the oringal website with a full picture gallery of the damage.
