Did anyone hear what happened to a Hydra Sports boat on Saturday? My brother was at Oriole Beach boat ramp late in the day & saw this being loaded onto the trailer. He said he was told that they hit some rocks, everyone bailed off and no one was hurt - but it sure looks like it hit more that rocks!
Glad no one was injured.

I don't have any additional information. All they told my brother was that they hit some rocks. He said it also looked like they lost an outboard - or maybe two! There was only one still in place. He said there was water pouring out of the bow also.

Looks like the same hull, and bow damage. Flipped over washing against the rocks like that, the top-side damage makes sense. The story says she was worried because she they couldn't see anything and after the 6th time shining a spotlight on the water, about as soon as they got on plane they had the impact...

Wha-wha-what??? On plane, coming into a pass (with jetties no less), when you know you can't see?? I'm glad they weren't killed, but there is a level of complete foolhardiness that is just hard to fathom sometimes.
