Boat From Lake George Tragedy That Inspired Meryl Streep Movie For Sale
The Lake George tour boat that tragically sank killing 20 people, is up for sale.
A leaf pepping trip turned tragic in 2005 when a group of seniors from Ohio and Michigan boarded the Ethan Allen in Lake George, New York. The boat capsized and sank killing 20 of the 47 seniors on board. Investigators later found the boat was overloaded and unstable, causing it to sink.
“That is the boat that sank on Lake George because the hardtop was so heavy. That’s what caused it to capsize,” broker John Wickman, who listed the vessel, told The Glens Falls Chronicle.
