Holy crap! I have to ask the same question, is that why you got the new boat, insurnace scrapped the old one? Were you just out and got stuck in the storm, or was it parked? How come the bilge pumps never came on?

You silly guys. There was a whole thread on this a month or two ago LOL.

He said the bilge was running, the drain nut was removed and for 6 hours water was draining, Id assume the insurance totaled the boat.

Heres the original posting.

I think i missed that whole topic.

Who thought the wake was big after 1500lbs of ballast? With half the lake in the boat she must have thrown a big wake eh?

yes. did my 03 lsv--had to pull the whole floor up. pain in the ass but would have been impossible to replace the cable without lifting the floor up.

Wow, just read the old thread. Glad boats today are meant to stay afloat no matter what. Not to seem insensative, but a great way to get a new boat :)

I've been wondering why they did total it, it was still running and im thinking after getting the water out and it should be good to go so to speak. Or did it go completely under after the photo's.
