Wow, another case of a 32 fountain sinking. All it takes is maybe 6 people sitting on the back end. Same thing happened to a buddy's boat.

my buddy's 32 sunk 3 years ago. Just a little bit of wave action overnight at the dock. No wonder they don't make them anymore. He is still driving his. Good as new because it was in freshwater

Wow, this brings up bad memories from our trip to Lake of The Ozarks shootout last year.

Thankfully all got out.

Leaking rear rub rail joint, not thru vent holes.

That is my worst nightmare. Waking up to water in a boat. That would be a HUGE panic situation. Thankful that everyone is okay. That's what is important.

Glad our's has staggered engines. Rub rails sits up about a foot off the water, and we have two bilge pumps 1200gph on starboard and 900gph on port side. Had 10 people in it yesturday still floatin. Knock on wood.
