was this that bunch of rocks somewhere out there? I seem to remember someone commenting here on that story from two summers ago when the over loaded boat hit the shore and threw a bunch of people into the woods. I though a couple people said there's a big rock or something that you need to go around but if you don't know the lake, its easy to hit.
