Yep, it's made to look like that. First saw the pic posted on FB about a year and a half ago. I'd google it for you... but I can't remember the name of the boat.

Leave your hatch open in shallow water, rough seas and high winds? Not have the sense to move away from shore with your forward hatch closed?

I say that because not that long ago a boat sank just that way in Tampa Bay -- I *think* in the Michelob Cup race. They had an assymetrical out, probably why the hatch was open, tacked badly, and the assymetrical scooped up water and pulled the bow down -- to the open hatch.

Oops.

However, that water was deep enough that the whole boat sank. The skipper was smart, grabbed a piece of line, and tied him and his five crew members together. They were all rescued unhurt.
