Sarasota : Update on boat #97 Tiki Lee’s
The cause of the incident was due to the boat hitting a wave at speed, being propelled into the air and then ‘stuffing’ into the water.
The leg injury sustained by one of the crew members required surgery but he is recovering well and is in good spirits. He is expected to travel home later today.
