Thumbs down Sunk My Boat

Today I came home after class to find that my boat was completely sunk...



I think that the shore water line burst and the bilge pump couldn't even get close to keeping up...

So I am trying to get a hold of some blue plastic barrels right now, and an air compressor. My friend is a scuba dive master so he said he would help. The plan is to wrap a sort of harness underneath the hull, and attach the barrels to it. I really need to get it out of the water before it is a total loss. All of the plywood deck has me really worried at this point.

This sucks.

If you are not joking, get ahold of Jeff Pullen of Pullen tows, he has the Boat US tow service for Lk Union and washington. Tell him marty sent ya!

Now if this is an APRIL fools joke, I think we need to send a diver down there with a drill!

By the way, is the keel on a boat supposed to be upright? mast down?

An pics, or it did not happen!

I was about to give you my condolences and say what a bummer that was, but now I think I'll wish that you get bad runs from the Mexican food you had for dinner.
