Default Rampage 24 - Sank on the mooring...what to do??

It's a sad Monday. Last night the boat, a 1987 Rampage 24 Express, sank on the mooring. Twin 2017 Yamaha F150s (100hrs). She will be pulled tomorrow by Sea Tow.
Does anyone know how much damage is done to those engines if submerged in salt water for 24-36 hours? I'm assuming it's a total loss...but is there a silver lining?

Kinda depends on how well you are insured......

very sad...are you insured?...lost my boat 10 years ago, sank at the dock in torrential rain, think pump failed overnight...I was told once engines go under, it's pretty much a total...

If you have insurance let them work it out. If you dont, you might be able to save the motors with some elbow grease. That basically consists of getting all of the salt water off and attempting to preserve them as soon as they come out of the water.

I bought a 246 Aquasport that was rolled in the St Lucie Inlet years ago. The boat and engines went to a shop and were cleaned up and gone over by a good mechanic and they worked fine for years until I sold the boat. And, as I recall it wasn't near as expensive as I was expecting. So don't give up hope.

They're going to wait a whole day? Isn't the coast guard worried about a fuel spill?

Such a horrible thing to happen. Our Mako sank. I really hope you were well insured. Best of luck.

that sucks sorry to hear, if you are in the situation where they won't replace the engines, if they were pickled right, and usually a bunch of electrical parts will need replacing, starter, wiring harness, possibly ECM, etc they could be good after running the hell out of them
