News Release From BoatUS



VIDEO: Pro Angler Captures His Own Boat Sinking and Rescue

Dear Friends:

If you spend time on the water, what happened on September 4 to Pro Angler Chris Flint and Co-Angler Brett Walker may send a little shiver down your spine.

The two were ending a day of fishing the Bassmaster Northern Open on Michigan’s Lake St. Clair when they abandoned their sinking vessel and climbed aboard a nearby channel buoy for safety. To put it simply, their luck ran out.

Here’s the full report from BassFan.com, along with the video footage:
http://www.bassfan.com/news_article.asp?ID=5032#.VBBWBeeCZyA

As you know, a day on the water can turn suddenly bad with little warning. So when you head out this weekend, ask yourself, “Am I prepared to handle an incident like this?” If you’d like some help getting answers, our BoatUS Foundation has a range of boating safety topics at BoatUS.org/boating-safety.asp, from marine communications to distress signals and cold water boating, that may help you look at your onboard safety with a critical eye.

While most boating trips end on a good note, we all need to be prepared for the “what ifs”.

Stay safe-
Scott Croft

  Missouri River Near Great Falls, Montana
     Truck Drives Into the Missouri River.......
 

On Thursday afternoon, a truck went into the Missouri River. Reportedly, the driver of the truck had swerved to avoid a vehicle that had stopped abruptly. The police say they alcohol and drugs do not appear to have been factors in the incident. Traffic along River Drive North was shut down for a period of time while a tow truck yanked the truck from the river. The Montana Department of Environmental Quality say that a small amount of oil and gasoline leaked into the river........
