    Wasn't it a marlin that poked a hole in a fisherman a week or two back? :confused:

    I have to wonder who screwed up on Dream Catcher though. If the condition of the water is any indication, it's gotta' be mechanical or human error.

    Does any one know where this happened at and where the boat is from or spent most of it's time? I think I was just looking at this boat not but to long ago.

    I think they forgot to put the plug in before launching from the trailer. LoL
    Actually, it's a painful sight to see any yacht flounder and go under. Looks like everyone was safe with all those other boats around.

    Terrible sight really... a boat going down makes any boat owner's heart tighten up...

    What really happened?
