This definitely looks like the boat ran up on shore. Whether by accident or not, who knows at this point. I am not sure what to think. I don't know anyone that would put a toddler in a boat without a life jacket. Can a toddler remove a life jacket by himself? Were there fishing poles and tackle found in the boat? More questions than answers until Meinert is found.
Do you also see a rut in the sand?
Apologies in advance if this a silly question, but:
"Early Tuesday afternoon, game wardens drove his [Mr. Meinert's] boat under its own power to the boat ramp on the Trophy Club side of Grapevine Lake where Meinerts pickup truck was still parked. They took the boat as evidence hoping it might provide more clues to what happened. Life jackets were found in the boat." (BBM)
Is it likely that the boat would still be derivable after running up on shore? Wouldn't there be significant damage to the engine?
