I just sent this to the editor.
In regards to your article about the river crash. You don't think it is possible that the driver of the smaller boat is lieing to save his butt do you. What you describe is a common description of what is known as wake jumping. Where a small boat jumps the wake of a big boat to get some air time. Those small boats will NOT slide sideways for more than 50 ft let alone 4 or 5 seconds. I would say that the guy with the smaller boat more than likely landed right in front of the lerger boat and had no time to swerve. This has happened to me many times where I have to swerve to miss the smaller boat ( jet ski ). The way you wrote the article you put the blame for the accident on the larger boat not on the person that drove right in front of him without looking first. Would you blame the semi truck driver for an accident if a small car pulled right out in front of him at a cross street. Steve W.
