      They were in at the bowl all weekend and left maybe around 5. Got south the lock and dam and started taking on water. I was at the casino. Came back and got the news otherwise I would have been out helping. They were not sure where exactly they were and I could not hail them so I figured I would stay put as I had no clue what was needed. I monitored the radio, but must have been out of range.

            An exhaust boot? As in outdrive/leg exhaust bellows? I wouldn't think that'd sink a boat unless that's where the flappers were.

              I heard it was the boot that went around the exhaust or where the flapper was. That assembly was gone and they basically had a 4"hole.

                    They should've started stuffing tee shirts or whatever they had at hand into any hole they could find. Even small stuff will suck itself into the hole and slow it down some.

                    At some point it's time to cut your losses though.

                      I don't think they realized it until it was to late and limped it to shore. That is the problem with Blue Waters. Engines are amidships lots of space to the back of the boat and most of it is covered up.
