    Good One

    I appreciate your humor. I think the solution is to just keep it in the yard.

    All the best guys.

    I'm not kidding, most power boats are very difficult to right if flipped over. On the bright side, they often capture enough of an air pocket, under the fore deck, inside lockers, etc. to remain floating, so they can be towed to shore and hoisted out.

    Instead of planning for what will likely never happen, plan for some fun and good fishing. This doesn't mean disregard safety, but just remember the sea can do things to you that you just can't account for, though this shouldn't keep you ashore, just cautious.
