Yes.
I'd like to add one comment regarding a common mistake that you will want to avoid.

"Poor you" is used to express pity, as you correctly noted.

"You are so poor" means something very different. The adjective "poor" in this sentence means inpecunious (no money).
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Correction: impecunious.
Hi !

Propeller has been bent when boat was hit on reef

Sentence is Correct
Dear Duas,

It is not correct. You may say: the propeller was bent when the boat hit a reef.

Kind regards, Emotion: smile
