Another fine mess .............

This is on lake hartwell s.c. USA - pictures from boatfreaks.org I know it's not a RIB but there is an important lesson for everyone here ..............

The boat is a Fountain and only one week old. It seems the boat rolled and threw everyone out - then went wide open into the woods and up a tree - everyone is ok but the boat needs a little work.

The owner of this one apparently sunk his last one in the same way!

Now this one is sinking!! What's a bit worrying is the boats name "Temporary Insanity 2". Wonder what happened to the first one.
