Spectacular: man sinks two trucks trying to rescue $300,000 speed boat

After a family’s $300,000 Pavati AL26 boat began to sink in Cedar Lake, Indiana, several different recovery methods were attempted before they brought in a Jeep Wrangler and Ford Raptor off-roader. But nothing could save the boat.

In this video from Region News Source, with thoughtful commentary about the unfolding ‘s***-show’, the family is already in dire straits.

The entire situation is a bit of a head-scratcher according to Caleb Jacobs for the The Drive, and it’s unclear how the wake boat started sinking in the first place. 

“Regardless, the move to deploy the Wrangler and then the Raptor was questionable at best given the depth of the water. For a boat, it was shallow. For a couple of trucks, no matter their four-wheeling pedigree, it was way too deep,” says Jacobs.

Cedar Lake is a state-owned body of water and driving one car, let alone two, into it is a no-go.
