So apparently over the weekend a large heavy trawler came into our marina after dark, without lights and way to fast. They had 10 people on board and apparently could not disengage the transmission on their boat.

This is the end result. Apparently damage to the dock, plumbing, electrics and mangrove was very significant.

Our boat (DitchRider) is on the left and our neighbors boat (Googlandia) is on the right.

Remarkably neither of our boats was damaged. The trawler wasn't so lucky apparently. at Manatee Bay Club.

"...could not disengage the transmission..." Right! Maybe couldn't find the control ???

Glad your boats weren't damaged!
