    The boat is foam filled, I would be shocked if it ever sank. The stern is extremely low and could swamp backing down on a fish during a calm day. The boats original design was for the flat inshore waters of Florida. Sounds like a ball of white water hit the stern, flooded the battery...

    That was my boat. They bought it last spring. Three of the nicest people you could ever meet and guys that fish a lot. The boat is an older Mako 20 CC. Very wide and stable, but low to the water. This just sucks. News said all three should make a full recovery. My prayers are with them.
