Marty MacMillan who ran his XIAO MU JI out of West Lake, fell overboard and drowned over at Southwest Ledge on
Sunday morning. Itís not clear to me exactly what happened, but it seems like he was pulling a lobster pot warp that had
gotten tangled in his anchor when he he slipped and fell and was pulled under. Capt John DeMaio who was fishing
nearby picked him up and applied CPR, but it didnít work.
