The cats got quite a dead rise on the hull sides and the power boat doesn’t appear to have any bow damage.......I'm going with a rouge wave put it there...... :-o

Sorry about earlier post, but the picture of the cat and 'tender' didnt load.

Pretty impressive that with the stbd side obviously tidal, the boat didnt sink.


Did anybody else notice that the cat was called Exocet - would have been more appropriate for the speedboat!

You're right! On closer inspection I see that both the Cat and the power boat have their outboards raised. They definitely drifted into each other making them both equally culpable and therefore it's a wash.
