Poor Marvin had a swim on the weekend


He also copped some panel damage from the bank. Fortunately no electrical or mechanical damage

Haha Oooops. I think I would have been bailing out backwards after the first wheels went in and went thump.

I was confident if I made it down the drop I would make it out...I was wrong!

I was very close though

It got up to the top of the seat bottoms, just below the fuse box.

Carpets are now nice & clean prob cleaner than yours lol, & almost dry. Speakers work fine. Fan is blown (it was under) but I'll get a new one from the wrecker & the headlights are still a little foggy (they & the indicators had been full - both hosed out)

Did you get any clutch slip? I find everytime I'm in water I get major clutch slip..
I cannot understand how you managed to stay completely calm without any swearing when it first happened..

Haha, many years of white water kayaking, sometimes pretty extreme. It taught me to make correct decisions quickly & calmly

There was some swearing later when I realised I was stuck & the water was coming in, but mostly I was focused on saving my phone (moved from the centre console which later was under water to the top glove box) & getting out to set up the snatch.
