What started as a family fishing trip, ended with a boat overtaken by water Monday near Naples City Dock.

— Four people in Collier County came face-to-face with disaster Monday when their boat started taking on water near the Naples City Dock.

"The next thing I know there's more water and more water and more water," said Colleen Hynds, the boat's owner. Hynds said it happened in just minutes.

"Pretty soon [there was] only a little bit of the boat motor sticking out," she said.

It started as family fishing trip, but ended with their Bayliner boat overtaken by water.

Amen. The Chinese flip-flops of boats. Hauled down here by the hundreds by freshwater boaters who discover too late that cheap fittings and cheap plywood under a sheen of glass won't last long in the salt.

Do you know why they call them Bayliners? You find pieces of them lining the bay.
