This is a video of several ambitious (albeit misguided) boat owners who had their boat sink in 5 foot waves in West Grand Traverse Bay on August 30, 2009. They first thought that runnin 3 pumps in the ccabin would allow the steel hulled house boat to somehow float. I think it is safe to say water was comin in as fast as it was going out. Since plan A didn't work they decided to get a tow truck to pull the boat into shallow water so it was above water. Not a good idea... see video part 2.
