My buddy invited me to fish SCI on his boat, I passed for a couple of reasons. Long story short I'm glad I did. While under way around 9pm 40 miles offshore is flat calm clear sky conditions he collided with another boat with 5 people on board that was heading back to the mainland. They hit almost head on causing the other boat to ride up and onto his port side, notice the prop marks cut into the hull. Luckily nobody was injured or killed and both boats made it back to port with neither taking on water. If there was a third person on my buddies boat that person would have been hurt or killed. My buddies boat is totaled. Here are a couple of pictures, I'm posting this as a heads up and hopefully a learning experience for all of us. Be careful, the ocean is huge until it's not.
