That doesn’t matter. Most likely the major damage to the failed shock had been done before your fishing trip. It just happened to be the last straw and failed. If you don’t correct the problem more things will break. Next time it just might be the mount itself. You have to pay attention to the small stuff. It’s all related and needs to be corrected.
Every time the shock acts as a bump stop it’s a very violent hit. Something has to give. This time your shock, next time the mounts.
