    Saturday when all the boats were waiting for the start of the tourny we got a show at the Portage Lakes new state park. A guy was putting his boat in the water and I think he hit the gas on accident instead of the brake. His newer full size truck went in and was floating at the end of the courtousy ramps. He jumped out of his truck and into his boat. After about 5 - 10 minutes of staring at his truck floating it completely disapeared into the water. Don't know how long it took or how they got it out, but it was gone at 3 when the tourny was over.

    They should have left it in the lake. Trucks make good structure!

    I saw this happen at West Branch one July 4th about 15 years ago. After they towed the car out of the water and opened the doors a lot of beer cans flowed out . I would have to say thes was the root of the problem!
