Wow, that was painful to look at. Might be a good time to open a boat repair facility in the area or a boat junkyard. I would guess that many of those boats will get marginal repair job and find their way into the used market.

Lake Dunlap's dam is 41ft tall. Imagine watching your boat going over the top to it's death. I saw some of those boats at Texas Ski Ranch (Mastercraft dealer), it was sad to see

Alot of those pictures at the end are or the ski ranch. Other ones from greune where alot of the tubing rentals are. And most of the ones at the beginning do look like mqueeney. Sad to see. Hope all those boat owners had insurance

That's what I was thinking while looking at those photos! Couldn't believe how many there were.

I know that in the south buoys/moorings are a lot less common than in other places, but does anyone think that any of this would have been avoidable if people had their boats on moorings during a flood situation like this?

Absolutely not. The river flow went from 2,000cfs to over 55,000cfs in about 90min. Lake Dunlap is just a river with a small dam...not really much of a lake. Also, large debris like entire trees, RV's, trailers homes, etc...were also being pushed over the dam.

All of that should make a guy terrified to buy a used boat in the next year.

There has to be two boats from this disaster on Ebay right now. A X1 and I believe a nautiqe that only needs $2k worth of gel work when the tower legs went through the deck. More like $15k or more.

not really the biggest piece left of those boats is pretty small.
