The DEQ refuses to take into consideration, as it ponders the expansion of the new marina from 20 slips to 54; the study that was done showing that Gun Lake is operating at 167% capacity. The dangers of a crowded lake were made all too obvious by the tragic boat crash that occurred Saturday afternoon.
This crash happened near the new Landing Marina and the gas station – emergency services were set up in the front yard of my friend who lives next door to the gas station. I am keeping the victims in my prayers and encourage others to do the same.
That same friend had been out earlier on a 27′ tri-toon, and said they got swamped by waves created by all the boat traffic – she wonders if the two boaters couldn’t see each other?
Please, everyone – be extra careful out there…..
