No. She has been sailing the lake for as long as I can remember.

Otis 311, you should get more facts before you start something like this. As tragic as it was, it was not the result of powerboats, poker run boats, a collision of two boats, etc. Our industry does not need any more unfounded bad news.

Apparently the Ethan Allen uses unsecured folding style chairs
for seating. From what I heard,most of the people were over
on one side of the boat looking at the shoreline. This caused the
boat to list towards one side. The "Mo"came by causing a large
wake running parallel to the Ethan Allen causing the boat to tip.
The chairs all slid to one side causing the rest of the people
(and weight) to capsize the boat. Most people were elderly
and in wheelchairs or using walkers. Seems like a just the right
combination of circumstances to cause a tragedy. What a shame.

Horrible tragedy!!!! Just a thought, if you are senior, physically disabled (in a wheel chair or walker etc.) unable to swim for any reason or a child shouldn't you be wearing a pfd? I'm not speculating or pointing fingers at anyone, I 'm am just asking a question. If you fell into one of those categories that I mentioned above would you be wearing a pfd while on a boat?
Once a gain, sorry for anyones loss. My heart goes out to the friends and families of these victims.
