Just pull it out and run some diesel through the engines. Be as good as new!
I call bullcrap on that. Been in 3-4 foot storm surges. If the boat is running you would really have to do something stupid to roll it.

Man, very sad too see... Poor boat, but they'll get it back running again... Just gonna take alot of time/effort/work...
It happened to my family years ago on Lake Mojave, same thing, T-storm came up fast/quick, and we were stranded, so its hard to see this....

Also, any of you guys that have been on Lake Mead know, the water and weather conditions can change for the worse very quickly and its like a mimi ocean, at times....

When I saw the topic all I could think of was "later" and his "I sunk the boat" thread on the old Hotboat site. Now that was a thread that went everywhere.

Old Chinese Proverb Say:
"Put enough Water In Any Boat and It will Sink"

Hate to see this happen to anyone, glad no one was hurt, guess this is what insurance is for.

Best Regards,
