The wake put off by those is no joke. Got creamed by one coming through the CBBT. Easily a 4-5 ft wake...12-15 by THT standards.

I was thinking the same thing. They do put off a serious wake!

I am surprised they didn't have some escort. In the Chesapeake there is at least one helicopter, and two Navy patrol type boats and sometimes Coast Guard and VB Police.

Shoot, I'd be welcoming over the Russians over the Chinese... The bite might have been a bit slow for a bit after that sucker passed..

Agree about the wake. Tried to stuff the pulpit, real close. You see them all the time on CH bay. I think its 500yd distance on plane and 100yd @fast enough to maintain steering (fishing boat in pic). Did see a 26'-28'wa dissappear from wake while fishing off Cape Henry, guys were trolling for striper and I guess they knew what they were doing. Looked up the safty/laws after big escort with real big guns on tripods turned back to me for getting to close. After dealing with wake, glad he ran me off.

True Story - I anchored up was fishing with my father off Fisher's Island in the Fog. We heard an approaching fog horn and sounded back with our horn. Out of the fog, 1st came a Coastie 44' followed by a sub and it was close. We could tell that sub wasn't going to ram us, but our anchor line probably would not be so lucky. I ran up to the bow, un-cleated the line and started dumping line as quickly as possible thinking it may sink and not get caught in the sub's props. Well - it did get caught and stripped the remaining 200' or so off the boat in seconds. Fortunately, we had the line in a crate on the bow and not in a locker so the line payed out smoothly.

Coasties came back an hour later, took a statement & said that the Navy would be in touch. They did get in touch and were supposed to reimburse me for the anchor, line & chain, but I never saw it.

Could have ended up much worse for you. Wonder what your anchor line did to the sub's prop? Did you radio the Coasties to tell them what happened?

May not have been prop - could have been caught on any part of the sub and it would take it.

Seriously doubt the rope got into the prop. We have stern planes back there that stick out 8-10ft past the edge of the prop with several areas that can easily snag stuff.

There is a rope guard on the prop designed to cut up to 5/8 wire cable. Either way, I doubt any normal rope used to anchor a recreational boat would do anything but get ripped to shreds.

I am not sure what I can say about horsepower, but wiki lists it at 35,000HP
