Note twin steps.
Not speculating. Just noting.

Glad nobody got killed.

Imagine what a cheap boat would have looked like after that.

Yes, they do, but I see what you mean. I think that the boat held together pretty well considering the beating it took. Sunsations are very well built.

spot on the side could just be some delam from the twisting forces just prior to the roll.

Though I'm sure we are all aware of the debris common to spring water almost anywhere.

Lets just let this one sort itself out.

The 'whole' Chain O' Lakes is not 5-6 feet deep. Some of the lakes are 20 feet or more deep.

As you can imagine we've gotten a lot of calls today regarding this. A lot of the news out on the internet is speculation at this point, it's very sad this incident happened but to make sure nothing mechanically or structural happened Wayne and Dave left this afternoon to drive over and check on the owners and boat. No one is happy around here as this is the first incident of this kind to happen to any Sunsation and until we know all the facts, let’s keep the guys who got injured first and foremost in our thoughts. Once we can determine what happened, we’ll make a post on all the boards that have info regarding this.
