OMFG 

Having run a fuel plaza on the Ohiya Turnpike for 5 years, that has got to be my worst possible nightmare of those days come true.

I did have a 120 gallon diesel spill one day during a snow storm.  Some smart ass laid the hose down clicked on at the truck pumps and drove off.  Everybody including the Coast Guard showed up for that mess.  Back then (90's) any spill greater than 20 gallons required a call to the CG because of the possibility of the spill reaching a water way.  Took a couple weeks and a shit load of sand to clean it up.  The stink lasted a little longer.  :cringes:

But the dock floats and the boat floats so what's tipping it over?

Actually that is how most boats that are securely tied to docks sink, believe me, I know from many, many, many experiences growing up on the river with low water line ski boats. If I left the boat tied to the dock during the slightest rain, inevitably I am greeted by this scene upon return. Then you have to pull it out; hook the flushing system up to it and hope you can save the engine, I had a little Mercury that was tough as hell, I drowned it many times and it kept on going. lol

 Interesting. I guess the water runs to one side and it just gets worse and worse. Does the hull keep an air pocket inside? Otherwise the whole thing would sink.

Grady Whites have that distinctive bow shape, but they're not the only ones.
 
I've seen boats capsized or on their sides like that in waterways around NC and I've wondered how would one go about getting a craft that size "righted".  Do they just drag it to a shore or a launch site with a tug boat, or are there crane-type vessels that lift it out? I guess it could be pumped out.  I've just never seen it done.  I know a few people who have boats; I guess I just never asked about that.
