Fish fry fundraiser for injured boater

Boaters took a break from the water today to honor a friend off the shore.
 
Sailors at Presque Isle hold a fish fry every Memorial Day Weekend as a salute to the summer, but this year was different.
 
The celebration was in honor of their friend, Dan Williams, who suffered serious injuries at the park in July. 
 
Williams is still in the hospital and proceeds from the event benefit his family.
 
"Dan has been on the dock for I would have to guess 20 years and I'm only guessing but it might be a lot longer than that. He's one of those guys that once you meet him, you can't help but like him," said Ray Brown, the event coordinator. 
 
Organizers said the event shows the closeness of the boating community.
