    Houseboat location

    The houseboat in that pic is more than 2 miles from the accident scene! Likely a non factor.

    In the picture you reference above, at that particular time, I was just in front of the rental houseboat you mention. I was desperately trying to get them to move over to the right more. They were renters... what more can I say.

    The boat you see heading to pass them on the right side was a black, enclosed cockpit V bottom, possibly an Outer Limits. He passed between the rental houseboat and myself at over 100 MPH (estimated). The Skater in the accident was actually out on the other side, near the middle of the lake with good, clear open water.

    After the houseboat was passed, they immediately got over, as I assume they were pretty shocked.

    The accident happened about 1/2 mile or more past that area shown in the picture. The area where the wreck happened was actually a left turn in the lake, thus the damage to the starboard side of the Skater.

    Ive known KEvin for over 25 years great guy will be missed .He knew the risks he always lived life on the edge ,his motor cross days his air planes and more .Once he drove one of my race cars at Winchester IN hell he wrecked it in hot laps he always had the drive to win and be the best. He knew he could make the turn his skills where good if he thought a spectater was a problem he would have slowed down. It was just his time. I was there for my first poker run and didnt know it was him till late yesterday , Will never forget him or that poker run. My condolences to His Mom and Dad and Family RIP KEVIN... Dan
