All that b****y water and we had to run over that particular bit!
Might buy me a better knife I think.
same thing happened to me few yr back stoped 38ft hard boat 240hp V penta with 50 passangers on board
, rope cutter on shaft didn't stand a chance
, anchor dwn had to call divers out, took them an hr to free us.
knife gaffer'd on a stick/boat hook wouldn't have helped there of cause, but with a rib that's a good idea.
