Around 4 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 3, a 1977 tri-hull boat, operated by David Masbruch, 66, Belmont, capsized on the Mississippi River.
According to Burt Walters of the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, Masbruch, who also had five passengers on board, was at an idle speed when a big cruiser came out of the Marquette no-wake zone and opened up speed, causing a wave to wash over and fill the Masbruch boat.
Alarmed at the water in the boat, the occupants stood up, causing the boat to flip.
Walters said all passengers were wearing life jackets. Two passengers got gasoline on them, but were not seriously hurt.
The boat, worth an estimated $650, was totaled.
The operator of the cruiser was not identified.
