They allow THEM to have boats?

The US Corps of Army Engineers added another deficiency to their ineptitude list! They had been issued some boats and they let them sink.

The boats sank Sunday evening as a winter storm with wind gusts of up to 40 miles per hour blew in from the east, kicking up waves on the Columbia River as temperatures dropped into the low 20's.

Winds in the area normally come from the west, and the dock where the boats were tied up is sheltered from winds from that direction.

"Apparently the high winds just battered the boats around and knocked down structures and split the dock in half," said Joye Redfield-Wilder, spokeswoman for the Washington Department of Ecology in Yakima

How many boats, beside those in the care of the US Corps of Army Engineers, sank in those horrid conditions. Or, stated another way, how many people were taking proper care of their boats along the Columbia?
