TULALIP — Two men were uninjured after their boat capsized near Tulare Beach on Wednesday morning.
It was a windy morning and the water was choppy. That’s what overturned the 17-foot long boat about 500 feet from shore. The incident was reported around 8 a.m.
Two other people from a nearby boat helped retrieve the men from the water.
The two parties told officers they knew each other, said Courtney O’Keefe, a spokeswoman for the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.
Both of the men who went overboard were in their 40s and wearing life jackets. They’d already been returned to shore by the time officers arrived.
The boat was still in the water around 10:30 a.m. Wednesday. The men were going to try and get it out themselves, O’Keefe said.
