Last Saturday was a lovely day for many Snipe sailors at Lake Dillon, Colorado.
But not for one couple. A leak let water into a tank, perhaps contributing to a capsize and difficult recovery.
The crew and rescue workers got the boat up briefly, but the boat could't be de-watered, so eventually the crew hopped on the rescue boat while the Snipe was towed fully inverted.
The Snipe was towed to the nearby ramp area and righted so it could be hauled out and drained before repairs could begin.
