Local paper report...
Shannon Unger was enjoying a bonfire Sunday night with a couple of friends at her Lake Nipissing home when she heard a boat speeding across the lake.
Hearing the sounds of motors zipping by is part of life when you live on the lake.
But this was a little different.
“It was dark, around 9 p.m., and we heard this boat pass by our shore and my husband commented that it seemed pretty close to one of the islands out front,” Unger told The Nugget Tuesday.
“Less than 30 seconds after he commented we heard a massive noise. Scraping and smashing,” she said.
“We all stopped. We looked at each other and said 'holy crap. Something awful has happened.'”
Unger said at that point her husband and family friend jumped on the wave runner in the dark to try and find the boat in the water and assist those on board should they need help.
“We couldn't find anything,” she said. “But it didn't occur to us or to anyone to look up at the islands. Who would have thought it was up on an island.”
Unger said the next day they went back out and saw the boat teetering on an island on Lake Nipissing just off the shores around Rocky Shore Drive on the south shore.
As of Tuesday afternoon the boat was still up on the rocks.
The boat is white and green in colour and it's name according to an inscription on the back is called Lady Di.
