I've had a picture like that on my 'fridge for years. 'Cept it's from the stern with the name clearly visible beneath the surface. "MOLLY BROWN". Get it? ;)

Hmmm. Looks like a noisy, ugly, unseaworthy fiberglass speed boat. It's exactly where it belongs. ;)

Just in time I'd say.

Poor bugger. We tended to lose one or two every year in PNG when the rainy season started. A lot of plastic boats have holes in the transom very close to the waterline, whether for outboard motor controls, fish well pumps, cockpit scuppers whatever, lose a couple of inches of freeboard and down she goes.
