Sunk Airboat - Camp Mack This Afternoon

Post by kwanjangnihm »

Came in from the river and saw some guys towing a submerged airboat along side a pontoon boat, getting towed by another boat, with 3 guys in the water keeping it upright. They got it up to the sandy shore at camp mack and we all grabbed a rope and heaved it up while the guys bailed it out.
No one was hurt. Heard he was coming off the canal a bit fast, turned into the canal to mack, and took on water and it rolled over and down.

predator hull, ac engine, stucco embroidered on the seats

He's more trouble than you think, he'll kill your sugar, leave you in the drink.

Glad everyone is OK.. We had a friend sink just east of canal 40 and found out that there was another boat sunk on the west side of the same canal.. Damn, what a bad weekend. All OK..

Be safe..
