    Here's one we pulled out in the Everglades a few years ago. Fortunately, he went down in a canal next to a levee. This is right close to Sawgrass Park on US-27. My truck is the white one.
    It's a 3 part video.

    From the looks of the bottom of the boat I dont think it had been used in awhile. Plus with all the plastic bags I bet the bilge pump was clogged and that's assuming the batteries actually worked.

    Very impressive. I would've never envisioned that boat could've been up righted in that manner. Because the discharge hose broke, he had that pump motor awful close to the tube on his boat. When we left the pump motor unattended to jump over into the other boat to clear the plastic bags from the intake, I was thinking if that pump falls over and lands on that tube, it could melt a hole right through it.

    Wonder how that boat capsized to begin with.

    I learned how to parbuckle while in college in the early 2000s as a volunteer with Eckerd College Search and Rescue. I only put the training to use once, while righting a small bass boat that had been swamped and capsized by a large wake in the ICW.

    That boat isn’t worth the cost of recovery. I’d just tow it out into the ocean and sink it.

    It looks like he's done this before. Experience counts.
