Based on similar groundings by Freemans we have seen, a YF is clearly the superior vessel at mangrove destruction and penetration! Freeman can't win them all!

Absence of prop marks indicates tide was higher. Good penetration.

"Hi, Jake from State Farm?"
"Yes, this is Jake, how can I help you?"
"Well, you see here... last night...I hit an animal. With my boat. Am I covered?"
"Geez, that's terrible. It depends. What did you hit? A Manatee? A sea turtle?!?"
"Uhm...well, I uhhh....I hit a raccoon."

Kendall will be along any minute to argue this blasphemous assertion. Everyone get your popcorn ready.

That looks like buddy job, as in "hey man don't worry about it, I have a buddy with a tow truck we can put it on my work barge and go drag it out the woods"

Looks like the most practical way with the least amount of damage to the environment and boat. If you used Tow Boat/Sea Tow, they would be churning up the bottom and the angle of the pull would have been at least flat, if not a slight decline which would be hard on the boat getting pulled out...if they could get it out. If the boat was higher than the tow strap attachment on the boat, it would create a downward pull that could lead to the boat digging in, making it harder to remove. Put the tow truck on the barge, put the barge against the bank and you have a solid platform that will allow you to pull up and backwards, minimalizing the damage to the mangroves and shoreline.
