Super swimmer saves boat

Tommy Reed was able to rescue his boat after it had been trapped at the Pecan Marina for a year and a half. With a much improved lake level this week, Reed lowered the boat into the water, only to discover the boat would not run. The part-time Pecan resident donned flippers and a life jacket, jumped in the water, and pulled his boat some 200 yards to the ramp. His son, Gene Reed, helped him get the boat on the trailer.
