whoooooooooops

Sunken Rzr 900 recovered from Slocum Lake today. 7ft of water, in the middle of the lake. Large area of open water in middle but other areas seem solid.







Sunken Rzr 1000 recovered on Channel Lake today. 20ft of water, took a little bit to locate this one cuz of depth, not to metion that is a big utv in the boat! This is in front of thirsty turtle in the middle of the lake. Again large area of unsafe ice in that area but all areas around hole seem ok. ALWAYS use caution anywhere on the ice, it can change in a minute.

i want absolutely ZERO do do with one of those going through the ice.

at least you can jump the fuck off a sled.

one of those, in an enclosure, with either a seatbelt or a harness holding you in, along with the potential of having to open a door to get out?

I don't like the idea of a surprise submergence while driving in even a semi-enclosed vehicle.

So what happens to those things when they're submerged that long? Do they still work? If not, expensive to repair?

they typically are out of the water same day, if not, serious fines and shit.

if they fall in running, that's bad, if the pilot remembers to shut it off before it goes in, chances are it will be okay.

what does a recover like that cost someone? couple hundo?

not talking fines or any of that crap. just for that fan boat and crane to go get your sorry ass toy out of the water.

I'm amazed that such a little boat can lift a big 4-wheel like that. Wouldn't take much to dip the front of that boat below the water line. Obviously it worked though.

Do they have a diver that hooks these up or just a big treble hook?
