Default How to recover a Sunken Raceboat...

Here is a video some might enjoy, It's how a bunch of racers got together, Came up with a plan using 2 boats and a tow truck to recover a sunken raceboat perched under a bridge and sitting above a sixty foot hole!

That was nutz, imagine that boat turning sidewayz, and pulling the tow truck in with it?? I am not an engineer but the water was flowing very good, that could have easily turned out different.
