Re: Great Boat Crashes

It's seeing video's like this why I don't assume that the other boat sees me:

I get nervous just going below to make a sandwich but, maybe that's just me.

Re: Great Boat Crashes

Wow. Some of those could have been avoided with following right of way rules.
Surprised a helicopter even tried pulling a boat.

Re: Great Boat Crashes

Did not see this crash, but took the pic in a boat yard near NOLA. Apparently they tried to get under a bridge that was a bit too low.

Re: Great Boat Crashes

God. You just can not fix stupid...

That sailboat sinking under the dock amidst the pilings was horrifying to watch...

Yeah, that was ugly. Lesson learned: if you're going to hit a dock -- do it in a really big boat.
