It was going way faster than headway speed and crashed into rocks on Smith Point we saw and heard it. If it was truly seeking safe haven it could have gone into Glidden Cove or near one of the many docks. I watched it and knew it was in trouble.

It was disabled for a while even after it was pulled out away from the shore by boats. The Dive obviously had some kind of issue and was not just taking safe harbor. Believe what you want, but I saw it. The main thing is that it appears that nobody was hurt. Makes me realize how challenging it is to captain the Dive.
Very helpful. Perhaps not quite engineered for heavy weather, and/or lacking appropriate backup systems. The margin of error disappears when a boat is that big and boxy. Glad no one was hurt
