I would like to express my gratitude to all those who assisted me and my fellow fisherman on July 22, after our boat was swamped by a series of large wakes. My friends and I had been on the river for about six hours when we were hit on both sides and the bow by wakes. I was near the bow of the boat when the wake hit me in the middle of my back, which was quite the shock, as I am 6 feet, 2 inches tall. The boat went under in less than a second. What perplexed me most about the situation was other boats did not slow down, but continued to speed by, bombarding us with more large wakes.
