leave hatches unlatched open no matter what boat you have, if you have to get out quick, easy terms.

Can you ever get all of the water out of a boat after it's been on the bottom? Seems like it would soak into the coushins and make the boat slower and cause electrical gremlins.

In freshwater ussually no bad issues. Ya you are tossing your stereo and GPS and stuff ussually but the wiring survives fine and so do the engines as long as they are pickled fast enough.

Buddies Donzi sank last week at the dock and it was up and running next day and back in the water.

What type of fluid would you use to pickle a gasoline engine? I've heard diesel guys pickle their motors with diesel fuel or kerosene.

Diesel is good for pickle, best thing is to get it running if possible.
