Two weeks ago a guy walked up to my camp asking for help because his boat sank. Well it was a new sight to me and I wanted to share with any out there (like me) that had never thought of this one. I am a new boater (and I am on my second boat in less than two years), so I am not talking from on high. Anyway what happened is that he beached the boat on too high of a bank and his wake went over the stern and sank. It was a cut bank in about 10-12 feet of water with no shelf, so it went down. Only the bow was out of the water. This was not a little boat either. This might be a big dah to many here, but an important one if, like me, you never thought of your wake swamping you. Good (safe) Boating!
