OMG STFU. Nobody cares about the Cape Horn.

Wow, terrible. The cockpit is 3/4 full of water. My guess is a thru-hull gave way.

God bless the U.S. Coast Guard, nice job guys!

No kidding - I keep a roll of flex tape on board for this. I tested it underwater, putting it on under water and it stuck. I also have plugs for the thru-hulls on board.

Surprised it wouldn’t get on plane and keep running if all engines were running ok, even if it had a hose come off??

That’s why I like transom doors! And why isn’t any one of them manning buckets? Cripes...

Transom doors and 1000 hp won't help if the water is below decks.

It appears they did at least save the boat with hopefully not much damage.

Crazy pics there. Would for sure like to know cause. Always good to get the lessons learned.

I have no idea what happened in this case but I had a Carolina Classic that had a thru Hull for the raw water wash down in front of the engine in the bilge. No way to feasibly get to it. Never gave me any trouble but always worried me.

Not or sure why boat manufacturers would do something like that. I’m sure other boats have thru hulls that you can’t get to.

Had to be something major, that boat should not be easy to almost sink. Found a video of the same boat -

Scary situation, TG for Coast Guard. I’m sure testing my bilge pumps before launch this spring. The water is much too cold up here to be swimming.

Ridiculous. Any boat can sink, regardless of size. The Andrea Doria sank. So did the Titanic. The Ocean floors are littered with warships and merchant ships and all other sorts of boats, ships and even pontoons. So, a 42' Invincible can't sink ? Just Lucky this time.

A Sea Fox wouldn’t sink. #toptierboats
