TOWNSHIP 27 — Game wardens say the body of a boater who was knocked into Big Lake in Township 27 in eastern Maine last weekend has been recovered.

The body of 40-year-old Scott James of Princeton was found this morning.

James’ body was recovered after the warden service and volunteers resumed the search at 5 a.m. Wednesday, after suspending it Tuesday night due to darkness. The boater was located on the water’s surface approximately 300 yards off Greenlaw Island.

Scott had been boating with a 16-year-old family member Saturday afternoon when the boat hit a wave, knocking him into the water.
