A shame, glad everyone was OK. I am sorta bummed so many people slammed this guy. Has everyone that slammed this guy always worn their lanyard? I don't mean "always" like now...I mean throughout their entire boating hobby. I wonder if any of you have ever gone at speed in a boat without your lanyard on? Not just limited to concept of lanyards, I think most of us have done things in their past that they now know is dangerous and have become better educated and safer. (wiser?) Can't we look at situations like this as a guy that did get lucky enough to become educated before something bad happened? One of the things I have always enjoyed about this site is I feel it greatly accelerates the learning curve and I will be the first to admit I have learned a ton of things and thazt OSO not only entertain me, dare I say it make me a better/safer boater. Just my 2 cents.
