    Just be glad somebody didn't fill up the bow with expanding foam! That is a PITA to get out. Everything from truck tubes to water noodles gets used for emergency floatation. But, it wont make the boat unsinkable. Just leaves the bow eye up so it can be recovered easier. :(

    Thanks, i have a paddle. BUT if the need arises my plan is to sit on the swim deck and kick really hard.

    That's an important one, no power equals no steering.

    Very Important. If it's a jet drive, berkeley or jacuzzi, grease the zirk fittings before your test run!!!!! My new to me glastron lasted 20 minutes on the river before the pump seized. The grease had hardened and cooked the front bearing. Have to remove the engine to get repaired.....-Rich
