Default Ooops!!!! Night Boating

Canyon Lake, Tx 7.5ft low. Looks like a lot of forward momentum. No news about owner or passengers. Hope everyone was Ok.

Maybe they wanted to use the bimini because they didn't have an EZ up canopy.

How does a cruiser get that far up the beach?

I'm not at all trying to be one of those people that thinks every photo is a hoax... but where is the disturbed grave/sand where the boat would have traveled when it ran aground?

Maybe someone left the drain to the lake open to long.

I think that boat's been there a long time, and the lake drained away from under it. You can see that's where the shore line used to be before the lake receeded.
I can't see it traveling that far up the beach on its own momentum.

Nope
Happened late Saturday night. Everyone involved is OK. Boat not so much.

Wow. I stand corrected. It looks unimaginable, but lo and behold I guess it did skid that far.
