Whether they totally invert all depends on the depth of water. If the water is not as deep as the mast height, then they wont invert totally!

It is the speed of inversion that is important: An old (heavy) boat which sinks lower into the water with a wooden (floating) mast will invert MUCH slower than a new lightweight boat with buoyancy under the side decks and a metal mast with holes through it.
