Debbie Reynolds -- Not So Unsinkable

7/18/2008 8:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Molly Brown may have been unsinkable -- but Debbie Reynolds, the woman who immortalized her in "Unsinkable Molly Brown"... not so much.

The actress' 75-foot boat sunk into the St. John's River near Jacksonville after developing a hole that ended up sinking the vessel in about 10 minutes, according to reports. A crane had to be brought in to yank the boat out of 8 feet of water.

The $350,000 boat had about $100K worth of antiques on it when it sank. Old junk don't float!

Why on earth would anyone in their right frame of mind have $100,000 worth of antiques on a boat. Come on Debbie, are you going senile??

Babygirl, What a wasteful comment. Nothing worse than people claiming FIRST and not leaving somewhat of an intelligent post. Wake up and grow up.

Weird. Her daughter Carrie Fisher was in 'Drop Dead Fred,' a classic film in which her character's houseboat sank. Coincidence? ...er probably.

She has definitely aged well & I remember a few years ago when Eddie Fisher remarked how good she looked compared to Liz.

Um, according to reports, "yanking it out of water" took an entire day.

Ya, I saw her on Craig's show and she was a little naughty. But good luck to her. She got the shaft back when. Glad she is doing ok.
