Captain Conlin - June 29, 2007
The day I met Grant Conlin on a very windy day.
Grant decides to sail his newly acquired sailboat to the bay as the motor was not working.
The high winds immediately take effect and he decides to sail across the lake to tack back to the bay
The rudder flips out of the sockets so Grant jumps into the water for a fix but can't climb back into the sail boat
The craft keels over and a foot of water enters and this helps stabilize the vessel
Grant hangs onto the rudder and manages to steer the vessel back to the south shores.
He wil be landing on the flooded highway system east of the village, far away from the docking bay.
Almost home now.
Grant ties the vessel up on a highway sign that is now partially submerged in the high water levels
The provincial highway facing west from where he moored the sailboat.
Looking east. This was the year that all our water probems began at our village and is still ongoing.
