If swamped with whatever type of water or liquid, doesn't the engine sit above the water line? That way you drop the trunks/flaps and power up to drain the water out. Ours does.

Unless flipped of course.... Or sunk.

I suppose you could say tecnically that all the water in the river is rainwater or spring water, replenished by rainwater, so in one way swamped with rainwater would be one way of saying sunk!

Maybe a bit of an estate agent type description

Filled with water and f**ked might be a better way of putting it

Or in estate agent speak "thoroughly flushed after use"

How exactly did it get filled with rain water, what happened? You had better get your story straight before a potential buyer rocks up, your description so far would put off a potential buyer.
