Damn, I can't believe everyone on the boat survived, including the boat for the most part? That looks like it should have been the most terrible wreck possible, going into a rock wall?

I didn't see an article posted with any details, but I assume & hope everyone lived?

thats what I had in the early 80s true blondie and a stepside shortie red with monster mudders and it was fast at the races= mud/sand/ice.. also towed the boat in 90 with it. it sounds like the boat spun out and threw everyone in the water then went on its own in to the rocks.

When the water kicks up on the Great Lakes I'll stop and put the cells, vhf, and gps in my orange water tight emergency kit with the flares and stuff. Anyone not already vested up also must now do so. Lotsa fun trying to convince my guests that it's just a precaution, like a seat belt...At least they start using the grab bars.
