    Default A bad weekend..not mine thank goodness

    Had 2 boats sink this past weekend at Broken Bow..one had foam in the bow and didn't go all the way under..this one went down in about 80' of water and stayed for 2 days. They finally got some tubes and stuff down and got it to float back up.

    My guess is the "driveshaft" came apart (though the u-joints survived) and what remained flailing about on the pump end at 5k rpm took out the housing.

    I think that is actually the cleanout cover that was pushed into the transom cover upon impact on the bottom.

    I disagree.. It looks like that transom plate was covering half of the hand hole cover. Then when it went Kaboom the pump went backwards and ripped out.you can see where part of the hand hole cover had been painted and the damage to the plate definately goes outward.

    that sucks.. Glad im insured for loss.

    I puttin money on the aluminum spacer...look at that thing,maybe .125 thick at the weld maybe less, plus they probably pressed it togeather and then welded it so goodby aluminum heat treat. I have made many pump spacers and there is nfw id EVER do one unless it is solid billet ...thats just nuts

    my uncle saw it happen, said the boat danced the transom some, so i'm thinking the suction housing prob had a prior crack and he finally opened it up. another boat there had a leaking nos solenoid, and when he went to crank it, kabooooooooooooommmmmm my uncle said he thought someone was shooting at him from behind it was soo loud and he could feel it.

    yall don't forget that when a boat goes down, it goes pump 1st, which is prob some of that ta plate damage

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    The dude in the pic is standing on the bow of a Jet that sunk a few years ago at the narrows on a big weekend. I remember seeing the boat and 4-5 peeps on the transom, I looked away and next thing I saw was a shit load of cigarette butts a couple seats, beer cans, 20 gallons of fuel, and 6 people swimin' around wondering what the fu-k happened.
