boat size?

I have heard so many different stories about it, size of boat from 14 foot to 20 foot, now back to 16 foot. Three different sets of people trying for the rescue. It sure was too bad. I have got to get downstairs, tough with a broken leg, and find a couple of pictures. I have an excellent video taken from my son's 27 footer going right by the mast at about 20 knots. A lobsterman friend said that the mast will probably fall off this winter, then there will be a problem as it won't be very far below the surface. It doesn't really matter the size of the boat, it is an area for extreme caution. I am just trying to point out that it is an area to aware of the sea. You might ask GregD about the area. I think he had an experince there. Just trying to make guys aware of the dangers.
