I've been watching a lot of videos lately about the situation at Lake Mead concerning the ever diminishing water levels and have become intrigued with all of the exposed sunken boats that are being found. I am wondering, does anyone have any ideas as to what make and model this boat is?
Good call on that one, I was actually going to ask about that one also. It does look very much like a Dorsett for sure.
I saw one really cool jet boat in a video and it still had it's tag numbers painted on the bow. I'm sure if one could run the numbers and find out what type of boats these are and who owned them at the time of sinking. I'm thinking that some of those boats found in Lake Mead were sunk on purpose for insurance claims.
Buy an expensive boat, something happens and ya can't pay for it, go out and sink it, claim it was stolen, baddabing baddaboom, pay out!!!!! Who would've ever thought the water level would be so far down that these boats would ever be found? Forget about it!!! Lol.
I think it would be so cool to salvage the boat and restore it. Could really be a hot topic of shows. The headlines would all read "boat once sunk in Lake Mead, drought exposed, now restored to former glory"!!!
