Anyone lose a yacht?

$3.2 million yacht sinks in Lake Tahoe marina - Yahoo! News

I am really curious what they did to sink this monster inside the marina?

Re: Anyone lose a yacht?

two loose hose clamps... or one if sloppy. Also saw a motorboat sink once through the fresh water supply (city water plumbed in) when a hose came off a fitting inside ..... yikes!

Loved this quote

Quote:
"It's the ugliest thing I've ever seen," Tahoe Keys Property Association front desk clerk Ron Parker said, according to the newspaper. "My idea is it was so ugly someone had to sink it."

Not a big fan of these over-the-top houseboats. I hate to hear them referred to as "yachts." It looks like it could have been sunk by the wake from a personal watercraft.

Re: Anyone lose a yacht?

the price has likely now been reduced... substantially.

They said they heard a screech before it sank. I'm betting A/C cooling pump blew.

When there are so many BEAUTIFUL boats in the world, why on earth would ANYBODY buy something SO ugly?

That kind of money gets you brand new Oyster 625, or used 72 or 82 even!

Yeah but those are pretty boats, this was a house that floated...or rather was supposed to float.
