Passengers Tip Boat Trying to See Nudists

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Some 60 ``Splash Day'' revelers hoping to see nude sunbathers tipped over their double-decker barge when they crowded one side of the vessel.

They were rescued Sunday from Lake Travis, including two with minor injuries, authorities said.

The accident happened during Splash Day, a semiannual event hosted at the clothing-optional area by the Austin Tavern Guild, a gay and lesbian bar association.

Witnesses said that all of the people aboard the barge moved to one side after it was tied up at Hippie Hollow, the only public nude beach in Texas, creating uneven distribution and making it tilt.

``As the captain was running upstairs to tell them to move away from the railing, it capsized,'' dumping its passengers into about 39 feet of water, Travis County sheriff's spokesman Roger Wade said.

Krista Umscheid, a spokeswoman for the Lower Colorado River Authority, said everyone aboard was safe.

"It takes a lot of work to get to this level, so while I can play I'm going to play."

[I've learned that you cannot make someone love you. All you can do is stalk them and hope they panic and give in.]

[Once we were called secret admirers, now we are just called stalkers.]

[Restraining orders are just another way of saying I love you.]
