The ex-NFL player who fell overboard during a fishing trip and swam 9 MILES to shore finally got his boat back — but officials say it suffered roughly $70,000 in damages after crashing on a beach.
You know the story … 38-year-old Rob Konrad says he lost his footing and fell off his boat in the middle of the ocean back in January … and was forced to swim about 16 hours to shore.
The boat — which was on autopilot at the time — eventually crashed in the Grand Bahama Island near an area called “Deadman’s Reef” … and sustained major damage in the process.
Here’s a summary of the damages, according to the incident report, obtained by TMZ Sports:
— Damage to the gel coat and fiberglass on the bottom and side rails
— Damage to the gear cases on both motors along with the skegs
— Stress fractures on the top frame
— Damaged windows
Note — Konrad is submitting the damages to his insurance company.
