Boats remain unclaimed

A few stray boats are still waiting to be claimed on the south shore of Sylvan Lake. About 15 vessels were washed ashore last week after Friday’s wind storm.

A few stray boats are still waiting to be claimed on the south shore of Sylvan Lake.

About 15 vessels were washed ashore last week after Friday’s wind storm.

Cpl. Kevin Halwa with the Sylvan Lake RCMP said he expects the remaining boats to be picked up this long weekend as people return to their summer cabins and cottages.

RCMP tied off the boats and contacted owners if the boats were registered.

No boats were washed back out onto the lake and no major damage was done, except a few of the boats took on a lot of water.

RCMP remind boat owners to properly secure their boats or have someone keep an eye on them if they are not around for an extended period.

“If you’re only out at your cabin every weekend or something like that, I know it’s a lot easier to leave your boats in the water but there are liabilities if something happens while you’re gone,” Halwa said.
