Default Did a boat reck on lake hartwell

A friend from up there told me that a boat spun out and threw 2 men out, Then ran off in the woods. I thought there would be something on the board.

Holly cow, it is a good thing they were ejected That thing must have been going 50 + to drive that tree so far in, It looks like you were there Too Old, where are those from. Really though, it is lucky it went into the woods and not a boat, dock, or house. If the occupants are no longer in the boat it should kill and coast to a stop. Thats why you where the lanyard, I am sure it had one.

I bet the motors just ran at top RPM and gernaded. That must have been one hell of a noise.

WOW!! Hope everyone is OK. That's not a beak boat anymore, it's a wood pecker now.

Too bad that tree was there, it looks like it had another 100 ft in her.
