I REMEMBER THAT DAY LIKE YESTERDAY. I WAS ON A FISHING TRIP MYSELF. WE WERE OUT ABOUT 2 MILES PAST 5 STACKS TROLLING N NW. AROUND LUNCH WE HEARD SOME OTHER FISHERMEN ON THE RADIO TALKING THEN A FEW MINUTES LATER THE ACTUAL MAY-DAYS WERE TRANSMITTED. FROM WHAT I COULD TELL FROM LISTENING WE WERE ABOUT 5 MILES OR BETTER FROM THE SITE. MINUTES LATER A U.S.C.G. BOAT WAS MOVING FAST OUT OF THE DIRECTION OF OSWEGO HARBOR. THAT BOAT REALLY WAS MOVING, HEADDING SOMEWHAT EAST FROM 5 STACKS. AS WE LISTENED DUE TO THE DISTANCE WE DIDNT HEAR THE WHOLE CONVERSATION JUST A COUPLE BOATERS REPLIES TO PEOPLE AT THE SCENE GIVING ASSISTANCE. THE U.S.C.G. MUST OF ASKED SOMEONE 6 TIMES FOR THEIR EXACT POSITION. THAT PERSON REPEATED IT SEVERAL TIMES OVER AGAIN AS THEY SOUNDED VERY OUT OF BREATH. IT SOUNDED LIKE PEOPLE WERE IN THE WATER AS WELL AS HELPING THE BOATERS GET BACK IN THE BOAT. I THINK ONE OF THEM USED THE FISHING COOLER TO STAY AFLOAT. FROM WHAT IT SOUNDED LIKE, MR. SANTOS WAS AWARE OF THE WATER PROBLEM AND TRIED TO FIX IT PRIOR TO THE FIRST COUPLE TRANSMISSIONS FOR HELP. LATER THAT EVENING THE SAD NEWS WAS TRANSMITTED THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE BOATING COMMUNITY. AS WE LISTENED TO THE SAD NEWS WE ALSO NOTED THAT THE CAPTAIN WAS A HIGHLY REGARDED FISHERMAN WITH WELL OVER 25 YEARS EXPERIENCE AND LIKED BY ALL WHO KNEW HIM.
IT WAS A SAD DAY ON LAKE ONTARIO
