    Most likely a hose clamp on exhaust was corroded and the exhaust came off and filled boat with water.

    I'm hearing conflicting stories from my sources. Let me just say that this couldn't have happened to a rustier hose clamp.

    Most are double or triple clamped and stainless from my experience

    Hold on now, no talk of "blue suits" or "mouse traps"? You're welcome, Mr. Foots.

    We replace one or two each year due to corrosion and they break. Lack of maintenance for a year or two and you have yourself a problem. I mean it could of be a cracked through hull, a hose come off a bilge pump etc. but for it to go down that fast and not have a high water alarm alert you to an issue the hole was a large one. Exhaust is pretty much the biggest hole except for having a shaft rip out. But with the boat going in reverse water would be shoved up the exhaust putting extra pressure on the connection to the motor. But unless they do a survey we may never know. It was just an educated guess as to what happened.

    Stainless steel is an inherently shitty metal to work with and isn’t that strong, especially band clamps. I break a lot of stainless every year at the fertilizer plant, it will still corrode just not as fast as mild steel. Whatever happened I’m glad those guys got picked up quickly, being on a life raft can’t be easy on the nerves.

    Doesn’t matter how it happened, the fact all were rescued is all that matters.
    Yeah, but do you consider a dog to be a filthy animal? I wouldn't go so far as to call a dog filthy but they're definitely dirty. But, a dog's got personality. Personality goes a long way.
