Boat prop has been ruled out?

If it is,then Iwould check any late night flounder giggers in that area. The boom might be blocking them from the doormats...seems to me that they might have had a fillet knife on board that could make a similar cut to the one discribed.

Just Brain-storming...

They had a very similaract of vandalismover in Fairhope about a week ago. Booms were slashed with a knife or razor blade.
