Loc: East of Aberdeen, West of Mont...
Knowing what I do about the "area in question", that boat/operator should not be going at any speed to do damage to the boat......should have been running 30 - 40 feet to the east.
At low water, the pipe is 2-3 above the surface, during a minus tide even more.
The current owners told me they tried to pull it out, but it was a "no can do"......they did mention a diver and going down at low slack, and cutting it off...........but like many things $$$$$$$ dictate, what can be done.
I'll try and take a picture, Sunday.....but it a "hold over tide" so maybe it might be a "no show"....
