Two Toronto-area men are okay after their boat sank in Lake Simcoe.
Police say the men were trolling in the Big Bay Point area on Friday afternoon when a wave came over the stern of the boat causing it to take on water.
The pair did not have time to find and put on their life jackets and were forced to abandon the sinking vessel.
Using a set of boat seats and a plastic cooler as a flotation device the pair started to swim the nearly one kilometre to shore.
