Branson Talk / Re: Ride The Ducks Boat Capsizes in Storm

I notice that the big news, CNN, Wall Street, Sacremento and others all seem to get this special "information", But yet the locals even KCstar isnt reporting it..?  Yes the details will all come out, good or bad, in the next few weeks..

But unfornately it wont be news worthy 4 or 5 days from now..
 
The next big "news" will be when they get the duck out of the water, after that the new will be somewhere else

No I didnt,
It was  a performance vehicle with a 454 motor that would need to be rebuilt and modified.. 
By the time I bought it, transported it, then rebuilt motor and modiifed suspension.........   
Just didt work out logistically ??? ???.. 

I can buy a roller or driver a lot closer, and put the money in it, and have a better machine, I think ;D...

Thanks for the help!!

I feel so bad for the family of 11 from Indiana that had 9 perish and only 2 survive.  Sounds like it was the mother and one of her nephews.  I pray the two donít suffer from survivorsí remorse.  Such a horrible tragedy all around

So true,  I cant even fathom that.. :'( :'(
I have a very small family, If we lost 9 members at 1 time., It would wipe out the entire family......  :-\ :-\

Terrible.....

AS of 10:15 this morning..........


"""Seventeen people died Thursday night in a wind-driven lake tragedy that capsized and sank a tourist boat in the Missouri Ozarks.

Stone County Sheriff Doug Rader said some of the dead were children but he would not be specific. Media reports said at least three of the injured were under 18 years old; their injuries were minor. At least seven people were taken to hospitals, only one with a serious injury.

All missing people appeared to have been accounted for. Stone County Sheriff Doug Rader confirmed the total number of fatalities just after 10:15 a.m. Friday."""

This is very sad and it could have been any of us on those boats. 

I have not ridden them in many years but never will again I don't think.  I am trying to remember I do not think you wear life jackets while on the ride do you?  But I assume they have them onboard somewhere.  In those winds it would have been impossible to get them on though I would think.

This give a black eye to the entire Branson area and I would bet it is the end of the Ducks. 

Hershend dumped it at the right time I guess.

I was also worried that maybe some of my Branson friens may have been out for a cruise, but fortunatley no bad phone calls

No you dont wear life jackets during ride, Yes they are on vehicle (has to be, it is a federal law).
They had the Plastic window zipped shut on the ride, So I am afraid when it "sank" The only way out was the back door, or the captain to fold down front window.. Bad deal under these conditions..

I dont know that it will give a black eye to Branson? But the Ducks rides will be crippled for sure..
