So was it a kayak or a boat or what? In 28 years of operating inflatables I have never flipped one and never heard of one flipping on a lake.

Photo of the inflatable kayak is in one of the links below. Sounds to me like they put three people onto a two person kayak, without lifejackets, in heavy wind, and won a Darwin Award.
