Wrapped a buoy line around the prop and that thing was anchored in concrete.

Wow!
Ok but *** are the bouts anchored with? 3/4” cable?
A ski boat doing 30+mph carries a lot of momentum. Should have snapped the rope

Debate is active. So far its not course ball or anchor related is all thats known... ie. Course ball was ripped off but didnt cause the issue.

My money is on a loose mooring rope at speed. Note sjier gives up

My guess is several of the bouy lines wrapped in the prop and rudder at once

I'm surprised more info hasn't come out on this. Somebody has to know somebody where this happened. Camera date is as of 5 days ago, but the boat looks like an older model based on the tower. Can't tell the brand though

Once it does its dive it looks like a mid 2000's Ski Nautique to me, maybe a 206... But the tower is wrong and the front is off. Still not sure what boat it is but something happens at the lone orange buoy on the port side. Hope no on was hurt..
