Default Sunk 42' Fountain at LOTO

Anyone have the scoop on what happened here? Sad to see. Looks like it might have been at Parkview Bay?

Do people store go fast boats in the water for long periods of time at LOTO? I thought everyone used hydrohoists especially if they lived out of the area.

I woke up Sunday morning to see a film across the water behind the breakwall and knew a boat went down. The fountain was in the dock next to us. The drain plug was in. I spoke to someone who was slipped across from the Fountain. The story I heard was not a good one. The boat sank overnight. They had the boat floating by the time we left to watch Sundays runs.

The fuel left a nice film on my boat.....

What about the first part of the news story? Was that someone from OSO? " LAKE OF THE OZARKS - A group of spectators who had gathered along the race course for last weekend's Shootout were apparently not entertained by the antics of a boater who stripped off his clothes and exposed himself. By the time things had quieted down, a day at the races turned into an evening in jail.

According to the Missouri Water Patrol, the suspect apparently wasn't happy when the boat he was a passenger on was stopped near the mouth the cove at Shooter's 21 on Saturday afternoon.

The spectators who were offended by the suspect's behavior had provided a description. One of the officers working the race course spotted the boat and pulled it over. Although the suspect had put his clothes back on by that time, the officer still had a hard time convincing the man to cooperate."

The article says the owner had just trailered in from Ohio. That's a lousy way to start/end a vacation.

The beak does make them easier to spot when submerged...
