Oh man, what a bummer. So sorry to the owners of Kokopelli. If it is the same boat I am thinking of, I was staying near them at the New Bern Grand Marina last October. Also, the boat "Cool Hand Too" could possibly be the sailing vessel that just reached Ft Pierce Marina. Crazy that this happened to a boat that I used to see every day walking down the dock
. For being hit at that speed, as everyone else has said, I am surprised at the hull
integrity of the Beneteau
. Quite solid I'd say. I can't even imagine how horrific it was for the owners of Kokopelli to be down below and experience the impact... I think I would have had a heart attack. I wish the owners the best.
