A boat owner is facing charges a vessel ran aground on the Lund Harbour boat ramp.
Constable Kerri Chard with the Powell River RCMP says the boat had hit a rock and was taking on water.
Chard says the boat owner was found to be in violation of a court order to not consume alcohol.
He will appear in court at a later date.
The three passengers, from the Campbell River and Cortes Island area, were taken to hospital to be checked over.
