Las ttime I was there, April, the guy at the guard shack said they'd come pull you out. $ would depend on how bad you were stuck.

They used a great big come a long and a snatch block and about 2.5 hours of that and it was out of the pit. Sorry no pics of the retrieval I was a bit occupied. It wouldn't start at first after sitting all night in the water. Got it out changed battery would not start. Sprayed everything with a water displacer nothing. Let it sit for an hour came back smacked the start while the dnr guy tried to start it and it fired up. Sigh of relief. Now to change all the fluids and get the carpet dry.

Sounds like a plan. Sucks about the luck though.
