That boat looks like it just needs to be destroyed (which it already is) but to the point it couldn't be put back together. In my opinion, for safety, that boat should never see water again!

I believe that was a fatality boat. Brunswick/Baja employee was killed (woman) when the boat crossed a cruiser wake. Do a search and you should find the story. It happened at a Brunswick event/ company event.

I found the story on the Brunswick employee. Boat sank in 400 feet of water and had to have a specialized recovery unit to get it. Sounds like it sat on the bottom for more than a "short" time.
I agree, that boat should be destroyed.
