Re: Temporary Insanity


I'm sure for the owner, the insanity is a bit more permanent.

I wonder if he accounted for tide when he tied off. It'll look even funnier hanging from that line if the tide drops!

Re: Temporary Insanity

In similar vein, this one is real... The boat struck the pillar of a bridge spanning the North Channel, a section of the St. Lawrence River which passes Berthierville.

As to the original pictures story:
from: baltimore Sun, originally published on 2000-09-15

The story appears to be the following:
baltimore Sun, originally published on 2000-09-15, look down towards the bottom....

Will there be a III?

That was one very expensive and freaky "mishap" early Saturday morning near Bay Bridge Marina on Kent Island. Just before 2 a.m., the pilot of a 1992 Fountain, a 38-foot power boat that can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to replace, slammed his vessel into a channel marker with such force that it ripped a 17-foot-long gash from near the bow through the forward section, nearly slicing the craft in half. The boat was actually impaled on the marker, a fixed steel piling, until it was removed to dry dock.

Department of Natural Resources police identified the man at the helm as David Ventresca, 37, and his passenger as Brandon Ginesi, 26, both of Annapolis. Injuries were limited to Ginesi's broken arm and some lacerations. The Coast Guard credited an unidentified boater with rescuing the two men.
