That appears to be TowBoatUS, and a 32 perhaps 35 Fountain.
I was thinking a 42', he did say it looked like a 30..... you know, with the beak and all Alright, joke aside, boating season is too short no matter where you live and this sucks for anyone, aven if you can "afford" it.
Thats a crummy way to wake up!
Hope insurance treats him well.
Boat looks like a newer 35 Executioner
Was the boat sunk and they pulled it up becaue in that pick it does not look sunk. Fountains sit low in the back like int he pic.
The guy we talked to that was rafted to him said, His bilge pump could not keep up. Which makes me think the only thing would be the water pump hose coming off. Which is wierd in the middle of the night. Maybe that guy saw the AC on and the bilge pump never turned on.
Also said he had it painted recently.
Tow company floated it up and put a big pump on it to pump out the water.
In the pic it was sitting on the water at normal level. We did not see any bags around it either.
I would imagine somebody would know these PA guys and hear a accurate story of events.
The boat is a 32 I was on the end of B dock and headed to the bathrooms at 6 AM and with a cloudy head and I did not notice it was sinking. On my trip back I noticed as I got to the dock the bow was up in the air and the owner came out of the cabin pounding on the boats next to him trying to wake the other boaters. His wife came out looking for buckets and I told her I had some on board so we ran down to my boat to get them. By the time we returned it was to late and with in minutes she was on the bottom. The owner said that several people were sitting on the back of the boat a few hours earlier and figured the water started coming in the vents and did not realize it at the time. He also told me that he had the bilge pumps replaced last year. When SeaTow arrived I mentioned the thread on here about salvage rights and to make sure they did not claim the boat. SeaTow did not bring the proper equipment until early afternoon to raise the boat and by then the oil had made a mess.
Really sorry to hear that and glad no one was hurt.
That is not the first 32 Fountain to sink. I have heard of folks putting tennis balls in the air intake holes when they dock to keep water from entering.
Glad no one was hurt.
