Twice today I have had an island jump out in front of me and ram me. They do this a lot. What made these two occurrences different was that slamming the throttle into reverse after impact didn't do anything. My ship sat motionless. Even after numerous attempts at full forward, then reverse. With the second episode about 5 tries in I noticed I would actually get a couple of kts forward speed before stopping again. Eventually I got some reverse speed and I started to back up and could get myself clear.

I have a lot of experience dealing with these sneaky islands and know I  can get perma-stuck if I sideswipe onto an island  they hit me from the side but both of these cases were standard bow-in groundings.

Anyone else experience this?

It's rare for me to become perma-stuck on an island.

Pushing the envelope of maneuvering involves some risks.  Sometimes the risk yields a reward and sometimes one suffers a consequence.

Perma stuck is rare for me, but the time trying to free myself often causes me to lose a lot of XP that I otherwise would have gotten.

Time is relative. Being stuck for over a minute in a coop game is an eternity. Game is likely over by the time I get unstuck.

Exactly.  If you get stuck and it takes you more than 45 seconds to get free, you're likely to end up on the bottom of the XP chart.
