I was just down at the portarlington boat ramp when I came across an unusual sight.

I spoke with the owner he was backing off his trailer when the wind got it he applied power to spin around but hit another boat zoom in on the bow, it raised the nose and water came over the transom and the boat filled up then rolled over.
Lucky escape no one hurt just shows how quick things happen

The driver was about 70 and was under the boat when it flipped his wife thrown out-a few young guys lifted the boat up to get the driver out
Very lucky

Jesus that could be terrifying.

Although I believe at least their should be a pocket of air on the boat if it flipped?
