A few more.

This is why you avoid steel hulls I guess.

It's early ... The top deck looked like the top of a big poontoon at first. I thought what disaster. :confused. Then I saw it was a sunk houseboat. what a shame. Not sure if it's a steel hull or not but fiberglass ones & aluminum ones sink too. They all need maintenance.

I hope they had insurance. That was a big boat. Do you think it was one of the rentals or a privately owned one?

They were saying it had a 2.5" hole in the hull, It was steel. They had it for sale(if you look at the2nd pic there's a brokers sign right on the front) so I beleive it wasn't a rental.
