There was another boat crash tonight.
I will not call it an accident when two boats hit in that river.
You would not go flying around blind corners in your car or rush at great speed into oncoming traffic in your car. Why do it in a boat?!!
Apparently two boats head on same side of river. Both 14-16 foot with 40 horses. One man in river no injuries.
Note to man that fell in river.... If you were in fear of your life you can press charges of Felony Assault. Actually this applies to all involved just talk to the D.A.. This boat was going slow the other boat(hydrolite) ran right over them.
What I heard is the Hydrolite is notorious for running full speed all the time.
I have slowed way down in the last couple days. I know what I can easily control but the shore folks may not. Especially when I run the East side of the island and drive between people.
I came up one time and there was elbow to elbow West side of island and a boat coming down sideways. The boat probably came off step and ate rocks BTDT.
The closest I have seen in the last couple days has been two guys on shore with a boat right across from them and as I come around a corner going downstream I am coming between them them as a Woolridge is coming upstream between them. I dropped the throttle which is like the breaks in my boat (so long as I am not in a powerslide) and the Woolridge slipped through right before me. As loud as I could I let the shore guys know that there must be enough room for two boats to pass. BTW that is the rule for people wading...you must leave enough room for two boats to pass. I was going slow enough as that part of the river is quite narrow and windy.
