I'm not familiar with those waters but that jetty didn't look too submerged to me. Nevertheless, I'm glad no one was hurt.

Parts of it are...especially at high tide a large section is barely awash or not at all...

Bing maps has a nice birds eye view of it.

Red on right on returning.

In Everett, we also have a submerged jetty at high tide. The power boaters luv to cut between the buoy and the main section and some sailboaters will follow.
It's a common event for the ignorant to nail their keel.
