That's just what I thought when I saw it first time. I mentioned the clip to PeterM during the Poole Sib Cruise, but only found it again last night.

Apparently the back of the boat was broken, AND this is the second one the owner has "snapped".

A friend and I did something similar to a 13ft Dory about 35 years ago. We're unofficial rescue boat for some Poole Harbour ABs (tiny local sailing dingy) and launched the Dory off a large roller in the mouth of the harbour to "have words" with a motor boat who had just steamed through the middle of the fleet. There was a long period of silence followed by an ominous crack as we landed across the top of the next roller. The bow flexed down about a foot and then sprang back. Thought nothing of it, but did notice the boat getting sluggish. The motor way always playing up, 40hp Johnson, so reckoned it was that. Came to recover the boat and could hardly get it back on the trailer. When we did, water was pouring out of cracks running sideways across both tunnels of the cathedral hull about a third of the way back from the bow.

Turned out the hull had been leaking for some time and the foam between was completely waterlogged and had lost its integrity, so it collapsed on impact and the hull folded up (down). If it hadn't been for the double hull it would have sunk on the spot!

Happy days!
