Boat Donated to Grand County for Water Rescues

grand county sheriffGrand County is getting a boat to patrol and help with rescues on Lake Granby following the death of a swimmer over July 4th weekend. Boulder County resident Richard Paquette says he was watching the news about the search for 31-year-old Christopher Mullinex when he got the idea to donate his 1991 Boston Whaler. Grand County doesn’t have a boat and had to get outside help in the search. Paquette called the idea to donate his 1991 Boston Whaler “a message from God.” He and his wife June were already planning to sell the boat, and had even listed it on 55 Country Swap Shop for nearly a week. Mullinex’s family has also been raising money to help support a water rescue in the county.
