    Default Boat Sank

    This happened over 4th weekend. The area is really close to the party cove at the lake and is one of the busiest spots on the lake. I wouldn't think of getting out in that area in my LSV.

    Sank or submerged? There should be enough floatation to account for water ballast thus a submerged situation that is remedied by pumping out the bilge and ballast. If lead ballast is used with an overloaded boat then sinking could be possibility.

    I don't believe Centruion boats are NMMA certified due to the fact that they fill the hull cavities with water instead of flotation foam. So, it could have sank, but the pic looks like it may have just been a really expensive bath tub.
