I did not delete it because the person in the video showed up. The thread got ugly with jabs being launched across the pond which was not right. If a General Discussion Moderator wants to re-open it; that's fine. It does not matter who/what/when was coordinated. The fact is that folks will view the video in a manner that appears the boat is being operated in an unsafe manner; and that will hurt all of us. No one that arbitrarily views the video is going to know its the same boat being passed over and over (even though there were a couple boats passed rather close); especially folks who are trying to gun us down and restrict powerboaters. No one is going to know a 'movie' was being filmed. No one is going to know how experienced the driver behind the wheel might have been. When was the last time you met a powerboat educated insurance underwriter? I know a few that would cast off powerboats in a second if they saw this video.
I anticipate the next Local Water Safety meeting showing the movie for a general viewing, complete with popcorn and daggers.
