Re: Hunter 35 pierced hull Lake Ray Hubbard, Texas

Last summer I took the boat to Possum Kingdom Lake (N TX) for a week of sailing. The lake was down several feet. Several times I hit something in the water while trying to get into cove or marina for the night. One stump lifted the boat up several inches as it slid over it. I expected to see some damage to the hull but found none when I loaded the boat for the trip home. I was quite lucky.

Oh, that's terrible. Glad they got the boat off the tree though, and glad no one was hurt.

Re: Hunter 35 pierced hull Lake Ray Hubbard, Texas

The article also indicates two people drowned when they were wading in low water, then stepped off a ledge and were unable to swim.
Bad news indeed.

Bayview is at the top of this picture. At the bottom of the picture is a red "pushpin" marker. The very tip of the pin is the location and is about 100 yards (if that) offshore. The water depth was confirmed at 23 feet directly under the boat where is struck the tree. The top of the tree was only inches below the surface. Back in the 70's and early 80's we skied all over the lake, but not there because you could see there was about an acre of tree tops sticking out of the water. Now all the tops are gone but what lingers below will ruin your day.

chucklesR...From the center of the DFW metro area, there are probably a dozen lakes within an hour drive. It is sad but true that we have drownings regularly year-round. It's almost certain though that we will have multiple drownings during the major summer holidays...Memorial Day, July 4th and Labor Day. The news stories usually include:

*Alcohol may have been involved
*No life jacket
*Didn't know how to swim

When boats are involved, it's rarely collisions, but more likely to be wind and wave related. Much of the time these drownings have nothing to do with boats. Folks decide to wade or swim out from the shore and get into trouble.
