17 Stranded Boats Rescued

KSAL StaffMay 29, 2014

The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism said officers pulled 17 stranded boats off the reservoirs during the holiday weekend.

Capt. Dan Melson said Wednesday the boats either ran out of gas or had mechanical failures. He says the holiday generally is the first time every year people take out their boats, and many don’t prepare their boats for the water.

The number of boating and fishing incidents was relatively low because rainy weather kept many boaters off the reservoirs.

Two people drowned in Kansas reservoirs during the weekend. Wardens issued 113 citations for boating violations and 67 for fishing violations, and one person was arrested for boating under the influence.
