Did you guys read about the 6 or 7 mature women who were on a pontoon boat last weekend on Lake Eufaula, when it was caught in a sudden storm, and turned over by the high winds and waves? The women were not wearing life vests, but all survived by clinging to the pontoons until they were able to make their way from under the boat to the floor area between the overturned pontoons. Once the storm had passed, the women were rescued by boaters who had watched from shore, but, were unable to come to the women's aid while the the storm was raging. I've always thought that a pontoon boat would be hard to turn over, but I did feel endangered a couple of time on Lake Eufaula, when caught in a storm in my pontoon boat, but by quartering the wind and waves I was able to make it to safety. One or twice I even put on my life vest!oooh: It would have been interesting to have seen how the pontoon boat was righted!
