well, we were in the middle of a lake when we first heard a squeaking.
the boat slowly started to get lower and lower.
we aimed for shore( by this time we were up to our ankles in water).somehow we pumped the boat all the way ashore and it took 5 people to get the boat out.
1 minute later I checked if the plug was in because all the water was flowing out of the back. It wasn't and it turned out some oppie kid had pulled out our plug just before we launched, I then found the plug lying on the ground where we rigged our boat up.
