That is a Bad Day on The Water, Moomba Boat Recovery. Shawnigan Lake BC

Posted by: Jesse Kleib on 11/18/2021

When you head out on the water for a day of fun in a boat, that boat going down under the surface is about the worst case scenario that could possibly happen and quite obviously, such a scenario could put a pretty big damper on your day if not your entire summer.

Even though such a happening might be pretty awful, you still have to figure out a way to tie up the loose ends and get your boat back to the shore. You can’t just leave it there! This time, we’re able to stop in on the recovery process as this boat owner is left to do nothing more than pick up the pieces.

From start to finish, we watch the almost half our process as the boat is removed from the water and brought back up to dry land once again. It isn’t exactly clear how the vessel managed to make it back to the edge of the water or what exactly happened to make it go down in the first place, but this thing took on some serious flooding.

Check out the video below that shows the extraction process that this boat owner would probably rather skip over and pretend it never happened. This situation looks like it’s an all around bad time and we wish these folks a speedy return to the water if they should try to make the journey happen again (probably not in this boat).
