Kate Morrone sent this report from today at Quabog:
Around 1:00 a guy from LI sailed into the open water that was marked with the cone (operator error). His buddy he was sailing with was near when Bob and I stopped. Bob got his throw rope out and the friend and Bob were able to pull him out. He said he wanted to get his boat but luckily his friend was firm about taking him to shore. Bob called the FD to report it. They came with a hover craft to retrieve it but could not find it and thought because of the current it got pulled under the ice. It was an older wood DN.
Who’d of thought to carry slush runners in the middle of February?
