Yes it sure is tempting to throw out a few roll bar boat jokes but in all seriousness the sudden submerging seems OMG .
Father and his son water skiing the slalom course. Driver was making adjustments to speed control got off course at the start. For unknown reason, at 34 MPH, the nose of the boat dove into the water instantly, submerged, then surfaced again. Boat ran over a rubber buoy which was attached by surgical tubing to the anchor below. When done, the buoy was missing but the bungee was still attached (unbroken) and anchor had not moved. No cables, ropes, or devices underwater anywhere in this lake.
