It blows me away how people can spend the big bucks on these boats and then not take proper care for them. It's a real shame.

Actually, the same thing happened to me with my '07 247 Wakesetter. The boat had 1.5 hours on it. I was doing the engine break in by the book when the temp alarm went off. Simultaneously, I noticed water seeping up from the midship ballast locker. I opened the engine hatch and the engine was totally submerged but still running. Since I was several miles from the dock in a sinking boat, I didn't shut the engine off. I limped back to the dock in the dark. The next morning I discovered one of the cooling hoses had popped off. So, the engine was sucking water from the lake straight into the boat. If I had known I probably could have shut the engine down and re-attahced the hose with minimal damage. But, as the entire engine was submerged I couldn't tell where the water was coming from.
