Boat found at Silver Beach on Pigeon Lake UPDATED

RCMP found owner of boat found drifting on Pigeon Lake July 8

UPDATED

Thorsby/Breton RCMP wishes to thank the public for their assistance in identifying the rightful owner of a boat recently recovered at Silver Beach on Pigeon Lake. This vessel has now been retrieved by the owner, and it’s loss was determined to be accidental in nature, and not the result of a theft.

Thorsby RCMP also wish to remind all owners of watercraft of the importance of properly registering these items, as it greatly aids in returning them to their owners in the event of theft or accidental loss.

Original story

On July 8th 2017 the Thorsby RCMP were contacted by a homeowner on Silver Beach, located on the north end of Pigeon Lake, regarding a boat that had grounded a short distance from their cabin that morning. The boat was discovered floating abandoned with the canvas hull covering still intact, and it appears that it had broken away from a mooring and floated unoccupied to the location.

RCMP checked the vessel and found no registration or ownership documents but did locate the Transport Canada inspection sticker onboard. There is no sign of recent use but the boat appears well cared for. It is a Bayliner Model 185 Bowrider, blue and white in color. Photos of the boat are attached.

As the owner of this vessel remains unidentified, Transport Canada Wreck Receiver has been notified and will take custody if the owner cannot be determined. If you are the owner of this vessel and possess the appropriate documentation, or if you have information regarding this vessel, please contact the Thorsby RCMP at 780 789-3950.
