Hiyah, Such a shame, careful who you pass your tow line to. If they had pulled it the other way, at least they may not have ripped the stick out of her. I have dragged a few sailboats off as needed, usually some discretion on the throttle and pull from the masthead....."slowly"
Anecdotal, but I am ranting about salvage
experts! I saw a bigtime operation lift
a sunken megayacht faster than the water
was removed. Ended up crushing the hull
with the thousands of pounds of water
still inside. Just pass it on to the insurance
