Boat & Watercraft Insurance

In 10 seconds, it Drifted 20 Feet

This summer, a party of four took a sailboat out on a Great Lake at about 1:00 am. Once they were a few miles from shore, they decided to take a midnight dip. All four of them. Before the boat was anchored.

As soon as the captain hit the water, he realized what they had done. By the time he began furiously swimming toward the boat, it had already drifted 20 feet. His lifeless body was found a week later floating near shore.

Two of the passengers treaded water for four hours. Some early morning fisherman rescued them. The Coast Guard located the other passenger. He did not survive.

The boat drifted about eight miles south.

If you have spent any time in the water, be it a lake, river or ocean, you know what can happen, happens quickly.
