Douglmbo, You need to provide us with more information as to what the situation was when the buffalo sank. The fellow must be a really big guy and he must have been leaning over the edge.
Even full of water, the machine should float at about water level if it is empty. If it is upside down, it should float higher because the body will trap some air.
Describe to us what you mean by "sunk". What year machine, what tires? How much air in the tires? Does it have a roll cage, winch, etc. I'm trying to understand how it could be so heavy!
All Max appear tipsy (they kind of bob like a cork) and it is important to have the weight evenly distributed and be ready to adjust the weight quickly and easily. one should enter the water straight on so one corner doesn't dip water.
Was it calm water or heavy current?
Please help us understand the situation.
