Exactly. Regardless, I was aboard the vessel after it was salvaged, I think what the writer meant was that the engine raw water hoses were cut. You would have to have seen the boat first hand to see the lengths they went through to make sure it sank, water tight bulkheads opened up, doors tied open with rope, portholes wired open, raw water lines cut, etc. Too bad the idiot that scuttled it didn't figure in all the wood and foam in the boat that gave it enough buoyancy to not sink completely to the bottom and ended up causing it to float below the surface to shallower water where it was eventually found!
