Is the rudder sitting like that because it got dragged through the mud....or was that the reason for the initial leak???

Good god I would have never had it on a flat bed like that. Cant even begin to imagine how much cost that would add to the repair...

Have no idea if the rudder was like that before or after the recovery effort.

Well, if i ever fear I am on the edge of maybe totaling my boat i will take that advice and flat bed it out. I can honestly say i would not have considered that an option. I am glad everyone was ok.

Side note: how the fook do you get that much rudder damage with no drive line damage?
Edit: ohh never mind. I see a missing blade now....

To be honest, if my helm ever goes completely under like that, I'd want the boat to be considered a total loss. In my experience, once an electrical system is submerged, you can never get all the bugs out.

Sounds like they want the insurance $ for a total loss.
That's just a string of stupid actions followed by the granddaddy dumb@ss move of having it winched onto a flatbed.
Then to add the driveline damage presumably from dragging it onto the roll off.
No remorse for those a holes. Probably just added $20 to ALL our ins premiums.

exactly... hell they were in the boat... I am sure it could have been floated but then the exact cause of submersion would have been very apparent... How far way from the place they yanked it out of was the the actual boat launch - anyone know?

The launch was about 200 feet away. We tried telling them to back the trailer in where the tow truck was and get the boat on the trailer then pull the trailer out. But they decided to do it differently. I just had to stay and watch it all play out. Feel a little bad, but it was kind of entertaining
