Looks like he didn't get it out before they lowered the lake level.
At least it is not froze into the lake.

The running gear may have a issue........

Does he ever put a cover on it or is it a sandbox now?

He always leaves his boat out, uncovered. The lake didn't drop overnight and he never takes care of his toys. He has a graveyard of inflatables in his back yard, 6 or 7 in two or three years. What a waste! The guy is a real jerk so I guess he deserves it.

That's what usually what happens to old station wagons once their owners get that first Mercedes!

soooooo...... did the prop shaft sink into the mud or is it now bent up flat against the bottom of the hull???

I have a 2001 Bu for sale if you neighbor wants another one :)

What a shame. It must be nice to have more money than brains.

If i lived on a lake like that I would build a cradle, strap it under the boat and wait till they lowered the lake level, winterize in place, cover. And let sit till the water came back.. no trailering needed.

If you don't mind saying, which lake is this schwartz?

I'm not sure if the shaft and prop sank in the mud or not. No doubt there is some damage. You should have seen it tip side to side when it was barely floating.

They have a dock with a lift. RIGHT BEHIND THE BOAT!

Lake that I enjoy all summer is own by PG@E. One of our major Power suppliers in Calif. So they don't pull down the lake until after September. Hydro Power is big in my area :cool:

A lot of times it is to prepare for spring rains.

Some places drop the level for dock repair too. Im wanting to say I have seen that boat on wakesiderides.com before. It looked like a sharp boat but that must have been when it was new.

The level of this lake is not managed. We are in a severe drought.
