Good thing too, as the MBUS directly on the gas block might have had issues. ;)
That was, and probably will e a pretty gun for a while down there till it corrodes. I think we need to sell our boats and buy some guns, one causes the other too much trouble.

Hire a good attorney and sue the Hell out of that boat manufacturer for Loss Of Property and for building an inferior product that cannot handle a lake water wake.

Redjacket did an episode on Sons of Guns that where they attached a inflatable personal floatation device inside a gun stock so if it went into the water it would sense the water, inflate and float up. as I recall it didn't work, but it's a cool idea.
I know they also make devices you put in on your tackle box that release a float on a string so you can retrieve the box if it gets dumped overboard.
As an aside I have thought about going diving for guns in the past. There's a stretch of ocean that I KNOW has some fun toys resting on the bottom. I've often wondered how the legalities of finding machine guns would work.

Did anyone see the "Sons of Guns" episode where the guy made the inflatable flotation collar for the AR?
