Just above the Ohio River Launch Club is a beached sailboat precariously leaning against a log with it's keel in the mud.

:eek:

My new boat has no plug. But on my old Sig 290, if I remove the plug I always taped it the steering wheel.

I wonder what the excuse is for this. If its daylight I don't see one. Night time in unfamiliar water...maybe. But he should have been going slow with a spot light looking for objects like this. Looking at the impact damage, I'd say he was well above no wake.

Early last year the Coast Guard in Buffalo erected new work lamps on the property. About 8 poles of 2 LED's lamps each. So incredibly bright. When coming in from the Niagara River you have to pass two large breakwalls. On the north side of these breakwalls are flashing white markers. Before the CG lights were installed, I could see them. Now, with the LED replacements on CG property, the breakwall lights are obliviated and cannot be seen let alone the breakwall. I sent them a letter a month ago about it. Haven't received a reply, not that I expect it.

SCARY! Four women in a boat got swept up in a current near a Texas dam and nearly went over the edge. A nearby boat wasn't strong enough to pull them to safety, but he was able to keep them from falling over until rescuers arrived.

My mind is baffled by things like this. If it wasn’t mechanical failure, you probably shouldn’t be behind the wheel of a boat.

I learned more about this incident. According to reports, it was a rented, electric boat. The driver ignored not one, but two signs concerning distance to the head of the dam. Once too close, the current over powered the little boat and they were pulled nearly over the edge. 🤦🏻‍♂️

Here is one more. I have no clue what happened but I suspect alcohol was involved.

He's probably saying ...that houseboat pulled out in front of me. LOL

It looks like the guy may have been added to the photo?
Hard to tell what he is standing on.
All I know is that I would not have wanted to be on either boat.

Correct, he was photoshopped in. Ironically, his truck went into a lake and he was flipping off the people taking video of him after a wrecker pulled it out 😂😂

I stand corrected. His truck didn’t go in the lake, but rather his pontoon fell off his trailer.
