Christmas tree boat capsized from high winds

Gusty winds capsized the Christmas tree boat late Monday night in Glen Lake.

LEELANAU COUNTY, Mich. (WPBN/WGTU) -- The high wind is causing all kinds of trouble across northern Michigan, but it won't take away one man's Christmas spirit!


Gusty winds capsized the Christmas tree boat late Monday night in Glen Lake. The boat was recovered early Tuesday morning by Glen Arbor resident, Frank Siepker Jr. who placed the boat in Glen Lake for the fourth year this holiday season.

The Christmas tree boat is a staple in the community and Siepker said he will put the tree back in place and relaunch the boat as soon as possible. First things first however, Siepker is hard at work with his job at Cherryland Electric getting power restored to customers across the area.
