I would like to hear anyone’s opinion on this matter about unsafe boaters on the Clearwater.
During the last 3 years several of us have noticed the rise in unsafe boating on this river.
Over the last few weeks there have been reports of intoxicated drivers w/ children aboard, excessive speeds, and just plain rude boating.
This river is not that big, and the speeds are not my real concern. However if you are coming into a corner why is in necessary to be in the wrong lane? Is driving a boat different than driving a vehicle on the road? Should we not maintain our lane around the bend of a river?
Also when boats are anchored, or individuals are wade fishing is it necessary to fly by at a high rate of speed sometimes coming within feet of the boat/person?
I have experienced all of this recently on this river, and it seems to be the 2 or 3 same boats.
I also have been told of similar situations that have happened to people that own property on this river.
I hope that I am not coming off as rude but if this applies to you, well go f#*k yourself!
