its gonna make a mess out of the motors by sitting. they were smart by pulling the blowers and I hope the plugs drain the oil, then leave the plugs out put oil back in and flush it out a few times by turning it over by hand or battery. then spray oil every where inside the motor and as soon as its back in your shop pull them apart. man glad everyone was ok , sounds like you were doing 50 and not high speeds. at 50 you bounce on the water at 70 or above you break body parts and can die, been there.

Where did you get this information??? I have seen several boats rolled, recovered, motors gone through, electronics replaced and boat is back on the water.

There is a certain 36' Skater that everyone on here has knowledge about that was back on the water in less than 10 days after it was rolled, submerged, towed back and recovered.

totaled as in unrepairable, or totaled as in in access of value to return to running?

total loss---insurance pays a determined value of the property...sends check and takes property and sells it as junk at salvage auction.
