A powerboat pulling a skier roared menacingly close to the youths’ plywood boat, tipping the smaller craft and tossing two of the boys into the bay. Authorities said the victim, known as a good swimmer, struggled as he tried to swim ashore and then went under, only yards from the boat. PROBLEM PR€GNRNCV?

Palmer said Texas has averaged more than 90 boating deaths an nually since 1979. She added that Texas ranked fourth nationally last year in the number of registered rec reational boats. “But you have to understand that sailboats and many other small craft do not have to be registered,” she said. “And you look out at any of our lakes on any weekend and you’ll see a large number of sailboats. Most of them have somebody drinking.” The state agency is coordinating its summer anti-drinking campaign with the Coast Guard, Palmer said. tNANI* *uwr ms Try our Battalion 845-2611
