HAHAHA....Yea, I thought there was some other stuff missing. As I recall it was a pretty messy hike to get to the boat. Those thieves worked for it!

First, that is a spooky video. Second, no way that damage comes from a 40 MPH spin-out.

Years ago a late 90s Donzi 33zx hooked and rolled on torch lake here in Michigan. The top deck seperated from the bottom deck and it sank. sad part is people died. Funny part is some kid bought it, fixed it, and uses it to this day. Research shows that was a common problem with that era of Donzi boats, especially the 45. This is not the first and not the last.
