Now that's a lot of ballast.

You know that carfax commercial with the hurricane car? The one where the guy is typing, about the "slight water damage," and then changes it to "new upholstery?"

I wonder what this guy is going to put on his ad.

I should start "boatfax." May save some people some pain.

from another website: "My friend left his 07 Xstar alone at the dock for only 5-6 hours at most came home at around 12:00 and found it on the bottom. Insurance cost to remove boat around $15000. Any ideas of why she went down? Hmmmmmm maybe bilge didn't work...Go figure !"
other details from post:
Ballast was empty, no lead in the boat, plug was in. Possibly a ball valve for the ballast intake that failed.

$15k to remove it?? I've seen boats that are sitting on the bottom be brought up by a single person, why so much?

theres gotta be lead in it or it wouldn't sink like that
Old     (ncsuuh)      Join Date: Jan 2007       06-03-2008, 12:18 PM Reply   
I think there is lead as well. If there was 1000 lbs of full balast it would just swamp, lead would make it sink like that.

maybe it wanted to be a malibu and committed suicide..

The only thing worse than forgetting your drain plugs at home is forgetting to check for the drain plug that you left at home. Ok, well I guess you could be forgetting to realize that you forgot to check for the missing plug that you forgot at home.

oops.

And boats DO sink, or at least MC's can. My buddy's X-80 went for a scuba mission to the bottom of Tahoe.

if he has the 8.1 motor, I bet it still jumps out of the hole and gets on plane.

Hey Jrod: Is it true you guys are on your Second 8L motor in your X star. I had heard that the orignal motor in your boat blew up and you are on your second one?

I don't see what the problem is... That is how all X-Stars look when they are sacked out...

A little water over the nose never hurt anyone.

Just turn the key.... and ride... I bet it throws a mean wake.

How did the boat get stuck under the dock? It looks like the poles are on the exterior of the dock making it impossible for something to get stuck underneath...

well i just checked the thread and was gonna ask if it was tidal waters. my brother did the same thing to his boat. it was improperly tied up to the dock and when the tide came in the rear got stuck under the dock.

I think its funny that there are a bunch of Haters out there and they all rock malibus..... I have seen a Malibu sunk worse than that; watch the bonus material from the The Truth DVD. That malibu three feet under including the tower.....

if you look at the taller poles have protection for not scratching boats, and it doesn't run all the way down it got stuck underneath that.
