I rescued a cat off a pole in florida bay

I was heading south today in florida bay on my way to key west today, I pickup a crab pot, I was able to shake it loose. While trying to get my bearings I notced a large cat excatly where I thought marker should be. As i got closer I noticed The water line in bow he bow was about a foot above the water This beautiful 44' lepoard cat had taken a steel marker pole directly up the tunnel and was hung up . The rustly Ibeam was bent like a prezel under his boat. I manged to pull him free from his stern. And on my way I went One tough cat
