Some pics of the 29-foot Fountain. It looks bad!

You can see the broken windshield. You can also see why the boat sank!

When we got there, it was under power pretty good and I could tell it was taking on water. The stern got lower and it was starting to list more and more. I could see the crack at the top of the gunwale but had no idea the cap and hull had separated. By the time the law got it stopped, the swim step was about 2inches underwater and it went down about 3mins after that.


My sincere condolences to Rick and his family.

Very sorry to hear. I have a daughter close to that age, it hit's me pretty hard at just the thought.

So sad to hear. I couldn't live without my little girl.

After the accidents last year and hearing stories like these, it was the main reason I switched to a slower boat from my cat. All of these accidents are so sad to hear, but when little kids are involved, it strikes me a little harder.

My prayers are with the family.
