I swung by to see the area today. We pass it all the time, but I never really pay that close attention to it. Big rocks at the shore, a short railing/fence, and a ton of trees beyond that. They all are very lucky they didn't hit one of them.
Whiteknuckle - I agree completely about people running hard at night. We spend some nights at Metro and it's scary to hear someone running out there, like you say, not at 2500. I usually go at minimum planing speed and have someone up front with me as a lookout, and I still don't like driving. Depth perception is horrible at night, and you get the occasional boat sitting or running without lights.
