Jay Slater – Summer 2006 Reported Sighting

April 23rd, 2008 · 3 Comments

In the summer of 2006 I was the department head of canoeing and
kayaking at Brown Ledge Camp on Colchester Bay in Vermont. I was on
the dock every morning at 9am. This time of the day the water was
always flat and there was rarely any boat traffic. One morning I was
on the dock with several other staff members when I saw a strange set
of waves in the middle of the bay. About 300 yards out in the bay I
saw a set of five or six small waves travelling away from the outlet of
the bay in toward Colchester Bay, towards the boat launch. The lake
was perfect glass except for those waves which all traveled in unison
across the bay until they went out of sight around the point. There
were no boats on the lake and it was completely silent. There was no
wind and nothing that could have possibly caused a disturbance of the
water. Further more the waves travelled in a manner where they all
stayed together in perfect space from each other, never spreading apart
or moving like normal chaotic waves. This same thing happened twice that summer.
I am not a nut or some guy that believes in aliens or anything like
that, I call em’ as I see em’ and thats what I saw. I had no
explanation of what it was in the water, naturally people around were
asking me what it was. I spent every day on that dock and saw all
sorts of different conditions but nothing like I saw those two
mornings. I have been around water all my life kayaking, sailing,
fishing and motor boating I know what all wakes look like and how waves
form. I don’t know if what I saw was Champ but what I have heard
other (normal, sane, nice) people say lines up startlingly similarly to
what I saw that summer. I believe something unexplained cause those
waves and from a very experienced water person they really were like
nothing I have ever seen. Lake Champlain is enormous and I really do
think that there is a very real possibility that there is something in
there that we don’t officially know about. Again I am a regular guy like anyone out there, I came in from Bozeman, MT as a kayak instructor at this summer camp and
this is what I saw, never have I seen anything in my life that simply
escaped explanation.

    I think that there could possibly be a monter in lake champlain, and other lakes around the globe. What we need to worry about is not what is in outter space but on our earth! People think that I’m crazy becase I believe in this kind of stuff, but I know that I’m right. I don’t believe in aliens though!!!!!

    I dont think your crazy. I firmley believe that there are so many undiscovered things in the ocean. I think it would be amazing to even catch a glimpse of what you saw. I hope i can one day.
