Here are pictures emailed to me by OSO member Silence157 to post. He's new to the boards and didn't know how to post pictures.

It is the correct boat. Here is a picture of it taken earlier in the day of the "wreck"

Holy shit! I made a comment in one of the threads about having to remount the toilet and galley counter. Geez.....broke the boat in half.

And oh boy, I'm sure his insurance company would like to see that video (if they already haven't) before paying for the repair.

Sources have told me this is the second Donzi he has trashed and Donzi made him take a driving course before purchasing this one. Not sure the accuracy of this, just what I was told

i have seen that nut on the bay before, I hope the kid was not with him when he was riding and trying to jump those breakers. USCG will be all over that video. Very bad move on his part. Alot of people have died there.

It's hard to tell from the picture. Does the driver have a mullet haircut?

I notice receding hairline, matching his choice of vessel

A little Marinetex and that should be good as new. But the stuff is white so maybe a magic marker after the fix?

He may wish to go onto the Fountain, Donzi, Baja, Pro-Line website for some advice.
They are now offering services and could maybe very well fix the hull in Washington, NC.
I'm not altogeather sure the damage is as nasty as it certainly appears.
If a repair is possible and in order then might as well take it to the guys that built it I would think.
