Accidents happen: I read of a guy whose schooner was run down by a paddle boat - it remained floating, fortunately, but if it had sunk, a marker buoy would have been comforting, I bet.
when Celestia went down, I dived in straight after it and made my way over to it in a straight line, the guilty RC hover circling where she had gone under, tapped hull with feet and got a safe retrival
