One of my mates ran over a poorly marked illegal salmon mono net in a narrow fairway as he was out doing his own pots ,
boat was an old woodern coble one that weighed about 2 tons ,the rope wrapped around the prop doing about 10 knots pulled out the prop and shaft leaving him with a 4inch hole where the bearings and shaft should have been ,luck for him the the lifeboat got to him and saved the boat but it was full to the gunnells before they got him.
