    Will a 4 stroke Yamaha Sink

    I'm not asking you to try this, but will a Yamahahahaha sink (especially the heavy 4 stroke).

    I've had a good look around in the hull, and it is full of polystyrene and hidden compartments, triple hull and all that milarky.

    But, if you had a really shitty day and filled it with water, would it sink to the bottom, or just get very low in the water, but still be towable back to shore?

    Someone must know or have had that really shitty day.

    And yes, I've had a drink. It's midnight over here Lol

    I am sure it is possible particularly is you have damage to the hull. Myself I can no longer carry insurance unless I lied about mods. So, I look for stumps & rocks before making a speed run....

    If you get drunk enough you can sink anything.

    No contest BillBob. I've tried already, and we know how that worked out .

    However, a trip across the beautiful Morecambe Bay, to Walney Island and I know who'll be smiling and who'll be sinking

    Seriously though, stop letting muppets out on that ski. It's tooo F**king quick and people are getting hurt. Chris's frightened me, in a nice way. How's the victim (not the ski)
