    Looked like he was having some kinda motor or outdrive problems.

    There were plenty of other boats out there that could have helped hm if that was the case.

    Maybe they were dead in the water, who know's?

    We've towed our share on the Columbia River, but my favorite was when we were crusing back to Portland and saw a couple waving in distress.

    Freezing cold that time of year and they were dead in the water.

    From Russia he hardly spoke a word of english but she was pretty affluent and Smokin' Hot!!

    She was ready to abandon ship but he not so much as we tied off for the tow, after a while with her oboard he agreed to disembark to our boat that was enclosed with heat and food.

    3 hours to get them to Camas and all the while he was trying to cuddle up to her to no avail, too funny to watch for my my Wife and I lol

    Safe at home, She tried to offer a $50 dollar bill to which we declined "No thank you and welcome to America"

    Doubt they lasted much longer after he put her at such risk, did I mention she was Smokin' Hot lol

    Oh yeah, good times on the Colunbia River, let the stories begin!

    My guess might be either inexperience or inebriation
