    Probably some oversized lardass like me trying to use the rail on a big bluefin, exceeded the strength of the hull.

    They keep making the rods and reels stronger and stronger, something has to give!
    OR your Bluefin came unhooked at color and you KICKED the hull with size14W boots Goose??? LOL

    Pulled to hard on a stuck anchor or.............

    When I ran Albacore Charter boats out of Morro Bay a lot of the San Diego boats would come up for a month or two many times they would return back south looking this way.........it won't happen if your paying attention to speed and pull back the throttles so maybe this happened at night.

    Also these kind boats have to be careful when there anchors get stuck it's a lot of wear and tear on the bow pulpit and especially the center of the keel at the bow above the waterline. Maybe maybe maybe.....lol.

    If that at damage is from rough weather at 8 kts I would think CG wants it pulled and inspected to certify it to carry passengers moving forward. Let alone the insurance company and landing. Hope they get back on the water soon.

    Look at the fiberglass and the black mark. Also there is water coming out of the port side as well.

    Anchor chain damage......
    This looks like they drove up over there anchor chain possibly when the anchor was fouled or stuck on the bottom. A stuck anchor can put a lot of stress on a bow pulpit and bulwarks.

    I have been on a albacore trip that the boat cracked a A frame in rough weather. Limped back to port. You could not tell externally any problem. The keel is strong at the bow, it has to be broken there.
    Looking at the website the boat runs water out of the front normally. What was the name of the boat before?

    Damn..... and the Skipper.... GARY BLACK..... in the day. He was quite a "character" too.... lol. Sad to admit I fished that boat 3 or 4 times.... with Gary.... had good trips.... nothing "Overwhelming"...... or "Unusual". Sad to see this.... for ANY San Diego Sportboat! Good luck to them.
