Was packing up the boat after a days diving and crabbing, when they recovered a boat run by a dive shop about 100 miles away. Nice boat, an ACB, about 30 feet or so, running (well, was) twin Suzuki 140's.

Saw the skipper pull the cowling off the port engine, so I wandered over. He said he lost an engine; was running along normally when it sounded like someone had stepped on a plastic water bottle, and power went to near zero. Post-mortem revealed that crankcase was ventilated 120 degrees around the front of the motor, about 1/2 - 1" swath of the cast metal punched out. I suspect a con rod either broke or came loose, but couldn't see anything amiss through the gash.

Kind of depressing way to end the day.
