As our family was driving down Great Central lake in our pleasure boat at approxamatly 30miles an hour I noticed the compass start spinning rapidly doing 360's from clockwise to counterclockwise and back again. all of a sudden the boat started missing and ((cutting)) out right away i thought UFO laughingly and we were all looking up in the sky that was perfectly clear, there were no clouds and seen nothing. we carried on up the lake and the boat ran worse but the compass started working normally again. so we turned around to head back to our cabin, where the compass first started acting up it started acting up again then it smartended up as we left that area. we barely got the boat back to our cabin (it is severe electronic problems in the engine). this is approxamitly 2 days after a sighting in Port Alberni. pretty biazzare eh?

((NUFORC Note: Witness forwards repair receipt from a local boat repair yard, but it does not indicate repair to compass. The witness appears to be serious about the report, but we cannot confirm the facts above. PD))
