He needs the boat police to write him a BIG ticket and makes sure he will never operate a boat again.

re: And this is why we have to keep a good lookout

I remember with my old 17' runabout, when driving on a big lake in flat water I would sometime get up and stand in the middle of the boat. I could get the boat to turn left or right by taking a step to that side of the boat, and steer it that way like a giant surfboard.

But I didn't get out of the flippin boat!

You are awesome! But I need to ask as an older person who now makes a mistake now and again, what is your back up plan?

This. I seriously doubt he was alone. Still a stupid stunt, though. And, criminal if he was alone.
