A friend of mine sunk a wake boat (2009 wakestar- malibu vlx copy--with a gm 6.0 motor) at the lake Saturday 01/09/2010 in about 20 feet of water. We contactd the Salvage people and they´re comming to raise the boat on Tuesday 01/12/2010. Is there anything we can do to save the engine? The mechaninc said he´ll be here on Wednsday to take alook but once we raise the boat do we just let it sit there or is there anyway we can drain the water? I read someof the related posts here thats says that once the engine is out of the water try to start it. Well do I just change the battery and try to crank it?
We are here in Belo Horizonte Brazil and have no access to an authorized dealer so any and all suggestions are greatly apreciate it!!!!!
