VIDEO: From the depths

One of the many worries on boaters’ minds is how their baby is fairing even when she was left safely secured in her slip.

Accidents do happen and, specifically, bilge pumps do fail, as appears to be the case in this video we found posted by TowBoatUS in Lake Norman, N.C.

The time-lapse imagery shows Captain Derek DeBord’s crew raising a small sailboat that sank in its slip.

The slogan DeBord uses for his website is “We Raise Sunken Boats,” and his video is certainly good self-promotion. If only everything was as easy as he makes this look!
