Yep, I got a beating in that spot once.
piton to hole ride. Eventually used some voodoo to work out of it while everyone else watched from above. I had gone down first to take pictures. Pitoned so hard it broke the lens cap on my camera that was in my padded watershed in my stern. It's hard to deal with a heavy hole beating after you just got the snot knocked out of ya.
Glad you were ok in the end.
