Dang that sucks! Got any pictures of the surf wave though? Looks like he was weighting it for surfing.

That doesn't even make sense. I can't possibly see the cap coming off unless someone left out the rivets when they were assembling it. And that's only like 2000lbs worth of weight? Something else was going on.... They must have added more weight and let the rub-rail dip below the surface in order to capsize.

My 2 cents.

Why were the bags left in the boat for a week? Anytime Someones boat I know sinks its becasue they leave the bags in. I dont know why it happens but it does.

Who said its a rub rail leak? I bet its a prop seal leak, enough water gets in and boom, rub rails under water.

it still had the weight in it when it capsized though? This is wierd, Besides why would they leave the boat docked with the weight to the rub rail? they were asking to be sunk.

That is strange you said the rub rail came apart. A person that Is part of our boating community sent his boat back to Nautique 2-3-4 times, cant remember exactly, for his rub rail coming apart and leaking tons of water into the boat. Wonder if your boat is a defect like his was

I can't image what "force" would cause the seem to separate? That sounds like a defect in construction.

I wonder if they were using lead that is kept in the boat? That bag on the back platform looks heavy.
