There's really only 3-4 through hulls that can be responsible for that amount of water and they are all usually lined up next to each other. Not sure on the invincible set up but I'm thinking a seachest would be a likely culprit. Rare chance it could be a transducer for which there's no seacock. We have two side scan transducers back there with pretty large holes in the bottom. It would be pretty tough for those to fail but i guess it could happen. Our boat doesn't have a head but i guess that could be another major source.

Gotta imagine it being tough once full of water but has anyone ever saved a boat like this from sinking buy jumping in there and closing off a seacock or jamming a dowel in? I know exactly where all seacocks area and carry a bag of wooden cone dowels in the safety bag but without a mask on standby I'm thinking it would be tough.

That (nice) boat has a lot of holes in the hull, including the bow thruster .......... the more there are the higher the chance of one failing ........... there is a lot of pressure on the rear parts of the hull at speed ............. IMHO, many of the needed acesses to seawater can be made via tubes between the engines ..... of course it is a cleaner installation with holes in the hull ....... but IMO there is no need ......... ( the tubes I mentioned passig over the transom not thorough it .............. in fact I plan on trying to implement this in the sled I am building ) The Raptor Project .....

I hit a log 4" hole lotta water comes in fast was able to stuff a life vest in the hole to slow the water down. The CG at the time would tow today they take occupants then Sea Tow takes over if you are lucky. I think I will replace my 19 year old thru hull wash down/live well 11/2" fitting easy to get at before I launch this year.

on FB a friend of the owner said the "hull split". Ive heard of other 42's having hull issues, but not recently. A good friend of mine just received his new 42.

Actually, the CG towed this boat in after Sea Tow's rope split. Great response by both boats.

I would guess he hit something or the transducer came out. Invincible has the through hulls lined up in the bilge and they should have been able to close the individual seacock if any one line failed. Anybody know how old the boat was?

Good ending to a bad situation. Must have a gas pump on board, sitting much higher in the water on last picture.

I gotta assume Coast Guard, luckily, had a boat very close to them when they received call and told them to sit tight. There's no mention of life raft being deployed and I would assume a seasoned captain on a 42 ft boat would have a life raft and would have deployed it unless CC said we'll be there in 5, or no life raft and they just got reeeeeaaaal lucky.

Looks like they just got the 1200 gallon livewell upgrade...

On a serious note, glad everyone made it out ok. I agree with the post above that it is crazy that no one has on a PFD with a hull full of water. Could have gotten really ugly.
