In an ideal world the pick up buoy & trip line ought to have had a weight a couple of metres down to stop it getting picked up by a prop ,
Thought doubt in the wave conditions it would have helped much & given the circumstances it's probelly the last thing the yachts skipper was worrying about when he dropped it .

Think also it shows from the rib point of view the importance in such sea conditions of having a decent bow fair lead & cleat or strong point rather than just having a crew member trying to hold the line :-(

The engine was unbolted by the owners and stripped of anything that survived, before the bits could unbolt themselves in the night....

Looks to me like there's still a fair bit of engine left.

Don't blame them., it'd have been on Ebay as a 'one owner, ran fine last year' within a week otherwise...

That's unbelievable, those boats are built like tanks. Stanchions are still in place, doesn't look like there's any cracking around the keel. Wow. I'd say the guy had a pretty lucky escape. :L

Also just goes to show the "do nothing right now" (when nobody is in danger) option can be a really good one! Imagine if someone got hurt, or worse on the rib just trying to recover a boat, that was ok anyway!!!!

Is this the yacht being cleared from the beach?

Good stuff Ian.

Goes to show how easy things can be when you have the right kit! Got to love a Huey ;-)
