    Default Another Jet claimed at Sag...

    Buddy from work was out yesterday, saw a boat go up in flames around echo beach. He thinks it was a 21 footer. He told me it was a jet, and by the time he got there there was nothing left. Hope eveyone was ok and got to shore.

    Anyone else hear anything??

    Yeah, it was mine! My brother and I had both my boats out there for a graduation party. He was driving my 21 foot Bisemeyer.



    Went down right in the middle of the channel entrance off the main lake.

    Noone was hurt, 'cept maybe some pride. My brother feels horrible about it, but honestly wasn't his fault. Everyone got off and onto another boat. I guess he had some time to try and locate where the smoke was coming from, but didn't know that the fire extinguisher was mounted on the gunnel beside the engine cover.

    Don't think that woulda saved it anyway, honestly. I guess someone threw him an extinguisher that went promptly in the lake, lol.

    VERY true!

    Well it is what it is. Coulda been much worse! Only had that one a couple of months, and not a lot invested in it really. Still stings a little. Someone video taped most of it and is mailing me a dvd.

    How many boats have gone down out there? I know a guy who had his go down earlier last month on it's maiden voyage. That one was recovered. The marina guy on the recovery barge said mine was the third one THAT DAY?
