Someone lose a boat on Seminole this weekend?

Postby OldRed » Sun Jan 20, 2008 9:42 pm

Son called me and told me he found an express duck boat with a longtail floating in the middle of spring creek this morning. He hauled it to shore and had a nice old couple call the police cause he thought someone fell out or was missing :eek: . Turns out the guys reported it missing yesterday...fell out or something but are alive :thumbsup: . Anyone on here hear anything about this boat or know the guys?

Haven't heard of that one. Talked to someone who said they found a flipped jon boat near the indian mound island today. A couple of weeks ago I found a flipped, sunk dixon boat out there in a stump field. I got the number off it and reported it to DNR but didn't hear what happened with that situation. Ya'll be careful out there.

yeah, I saw the john boat by the island this weekend. I am pretty sure that it wasn't there on friday, and then it was there Sunday morning, but I could be wrong. I tell you, that is one scary feeling looking at the boat in the water with only about 4 inches of the bow sticking up. We tried to pull it up, but couldnt.

Some time on Saturday the scanner went off and it was Seminole 911. A few guys were found floating, had been in the water 4 + hours. They were fine but cold. It could have been the same guys but don't really know.

The water can get rough. I saw a group of Thomasville boys in a "small" john last year try to brave the big water, the big water won.

The four guys who were found by Seminole EMS came out fine. I talked to the EMS director, and he told me about it. Apparently, they flipped out of the boat when they hit a stump. They were taken to Dothan eventually, but they were discharged and are ok. I used to work EMS in Grady County, and have friends that work in Decatur and Seminole County. As a member of a water rescue team, and as a Paramedic, I urge everyone to think about this and be careful when ya hunt. Use your safety devices that you have to carry on your boat. WEAR LIFEJACKETS!!!!

we should have tried to pull that boat up with something more than twine. I am glad the guys were ok. springer 4 years ago that could have us with your old boat.
