Missouri Lake Where 17 Drowned Could Get New Duck Boat Tours
A company says it is planning to bring “unsinkable” amphibious boat tours back to a Missouri lake where 17 people drowned.
The owners of Branson Duck Tours say they want to restart the tours on Table Rock Lake in Branson this spring. They say their boats will not resemble the World War II-era amphibious duck boats in use when a boat sank in July 2018 during a storm.
The company plans to use Hydra-Terra amphibious vessels, which include foam-filled compartments in the hull for buoyancy.
However, Branson spokeswoman Melody Pettit said the city has not received a business license application or heard anything about the proposal from Branson Duck Tours.
