The bulkhead was an "intruso" on that hull.

BEFORE the "bashing" commences..
Word has it, that the "boater" ISN'T in-experienced, Is "Familiar" with the "local waters", Weather, MAY had something to do with the "Accident", Rain/Fog? This Morning as conditions are quite dreary, ZERO dark Thirty..?? (this Morning).. Hopefully, All aboard, I'm hoping there were NOT Bad Injuries.. The Boat took a pretty good lick..
And NO that won't "Buff Out".. The Cap separated from the Hull, etc etc..

EDIT: there WERE INJURIES Not sure how bad yet..

Fishing the Jolly Mon? We were getting ready to pull off the dock at 6am for the Bluewater and it was plenty light out. They must have been running in the dark way early

I think most of us would assume that if we hit something with that section of the bow, that there would be some deflection to the starboard side. But that corner went straight into the hull, without a single horizontal scratch, that I can see. Must have been quite a jolt.

It seems that he was running too fast for the conditions. If it is dark, slow down!

Update..

DRIVER CHARGED, WOMAN SERIOUSLY INJURED IN BOAT CRASH NEAR SOUTHPORT

A passenger on a boat heading to a fishing tournament was seriously injured in a boat crash early Saturday morning, according to wildlife officials.

The accident happened around 5:15 a.m. as the operator of the boat, Jay Julian Espino of Fayetteville, was entering the Intracoastal Waterway near Indigo Plantation.

T.C. Stacey, a senior officer with the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission, said Espino, and four passengers planned to participate in the fishing tournament in Southport.

According to Stacey, the boat operator was going from one navigation light to another when he mistakenly ran the boat straight into the seawall.

All five people on the vessel received injuries but one passenger, Anna Amaya, suffered broken bones, a collapsed lung and other injuries. She and her husband were initially taken to Dosher Memorial Hospital in Southport. Due to the severity of her injuries, Amaya was transferred to the trauma center at New Hanover Regional Medical Center.


The accident caused $25,000 in damage to the vessel and resulted in a fuel to spill contained by local firefighters and the U.S. Coast Guard.

Espino was cited for careless and reckless operation of a boat.

Stacey says Espino did not have any formal training to operate the vessel. Since he was born in 1966, he is not required to have taken a boating safety class.

However, anyone born after January 1, 1988, is required to take a boating safety class to operate a vessel with a motor bigger than a 9.9 horsepower.

Neither alcohol or drugs were factors in the crash, Stacey said.

Wonder how fast they were running. Probably anything over 10 mph would smart rather fiercely if you hit a concrete seawall head on like that.

That must be someone's guesstimate of the damage. I can't imagine a hull that old and that badly damaged will be repaired by the insurance company. Then again, I'm not an insurance adjuster.

Hope everyone injured makes a full recovery!

Sorry this had to happen, but a wake up call for many. Prayers for all involved.
