Anyone ever see this before? Pretty nuts

These are pictures of the floating load hose on the FPSO Girassol in Angola, Africa that was pierced by a blue marlin. Load operations were shut down for a few days while they replaced the hose. For reference, this terminal produces about 250k barrels of oil a day and this loading hose is approx 24in in diameter

If that were real and the hose actually 24", the marlin would only be about 4 feet long. A 30# marlin would have to be shot out of a cannon to get the momentum to pierce 4" thick rubber :D
