The captain, noticing pooling water in the stern, began handing out life-jackets, and turned to go back to shore, but the boat filled and sank in 30 seconds, trapping many under its canopy.
21,000 of these unusual vessels were built by General Motors during WWII, and hundreds are still in use for amphibious tours in more than a dozen locations in the USA, including Boston, Philadelphia, Albany, and Wisconsin Dells.
Ray you’ve missed out on a wonderful experience on the lake–and most of his stories are true!
