OCMD Coast Guard Rescue Capsized Pontoon Boat In OC Inlet
This afternoon Guard OCMD, Maryland DNR Police and local emergency crews were called in for a capsized pontoon boat in the Ocean City Inlet.
There were 15 passengers that were all safely recovered. That is a lot of people on a pontoon boat.
I’ll be the one to say it, glad everyone is okay. Who in their right mind takes a pontoon boat out of any inlet around here. OCMD’s inlet is a tough one, but not as bad as the Indian River Inlet. Yes, boats can maneuver and manage inlets at slack tide and calm days. Still doesn’t mean you should.
Inlets are dangerous places, and in many’s opinion no place for a pontoon boat. Glad the crews were able to respond so fast. If you are not an experienced captain stick to the back bays.
