Well... the stupid guy left the boat on an anchor, the wind started and the boat took some water in.. then (and that's just my opinion) instead of pulling the boat to shore they decided to tow the boat.
the outcome you can see for yourself

Aww yes... the ol'wind and an anchor tale. I have seen this happen to even bigger boats at Lake Tahoe. That is one expensive lesson.

Definitely unfortunate to see something like that happen. There is a law firm that would like to see those pictures...

I think that will buff out!










But really, what a sad day for the owner.

so i'm definitely going to show my ignorance here but i figure i should learn something. my only real experience is with pontoons and pwc's. could you be more specific? is this a case where they anchored at the stern? why should they not have towed?

I suspect that "lake" might be the mediterenean sea?

Sea of galilee...
It's usually calm, but between June to August it get windy around noon, this year the winds gets really hard.

Nope, the anchor was at the bow.

That's unreal!!!! I guess the lesson learned here is go ahead and trailer the boat... it doesn't take that long. Total bummer.

Hey look! There is a benefit to hollow stringers! They are probably holding air right now thus creating ballast and keeping that boat floating!!

People buy boats but good sense is not on the market. I have seen boats swamped because of being anchored, beached, or broke down in rough water.
