Just came across this video of a Freedom 32 saved from sinking while at mooring.
Hope they make a full recovery.

I am still waiting for their follow-up
Up video to say what happened. I don't understand why no one towed them to nearest hard stand....

What I have gathered is that a thru-hull failed leaving the boat a total loss.

I heard that this boat sold recently as a salvage boat for about 7500 in Massachusetts. I have been looking for a freedom, this one came up in on of my searches, called, and found out that an offer had been accecpted. I asked how much it sold for and a woman that answered the phone told me that she thought it sold for that amount. I know little about the details of condition of boat at time of sale. Best.

I following their predicament, it was stated by the owners, as gulfcoastsailor stated, that a hose failed right at a thru-hull during the short period that they were away from the boat. It appeared to be under water, not fully, for less than a day, but that could be video editing also.
