Sailboat Sinks in Navigation Channel


The Oklahoma Highway Patrol (OHP) reported a sailboat is now submerged near Applegate Marina in the navigation channel on Kerr Lake, south of Sallisaw.

The OHP reported Chad Davis, 34, of Roland, was operating the sailboat at about 6 p.m. Monday when the boat began to take on water. Davis and a passenger, Caleb Montgomery, 33, of Roland, jumped out of the sailboat, wearing flotation devices, and got into a canoe the sailboat was towing. The two men then paddled to shore unharmed.

The sailboat is reported west of Applegate Marina. The U.S. Coast guard has been advised.
