I'd be a little more concerned as to why the boat was filled with fresh water while sitting in salt water... things that make ya go hmmmmm.

Don't need much of a hole in a water intake line to sink a boat overnight. Take a look at the size of your intake hose sometime, at least twice the size of a garden hose and three times the size of a drain plug hole.

Would this be due to a improper rigging ?

Where's that guy Dan that works for Outerlimits ? Seems like he jumps in on every Outerlimits thread, I'm sure he could clarify this one for us..

Why would 2 lines rub together in a boat that was on static display?

That's what I was thinking. When your paying that kind of coin for a boat of that caliber, I would think everything would be checked with a fine tooth comb. Everyone makes mistakes and nobody is perfect it just sucks that this mistake costs so much money.
