we've got to quite doing this to each other. with impending regulation on boating, we will soon have no were to boat.

For the most part most of us are responsible with our boats, but we must STOP! the reckless few who are wrecking it for all of us, and killing our friends and love ones.

I started this thread today when I found out, but We need your input. What do YOU think about this ? What can we do ?
I want to hear your reply.

Exactly why I resist taking my 2 year old niece out... too many idiots on the water these days.

I definatley support mandatory boaters training.. You need to get a special class license to ride a motorcycle, why not a boat?

I am very sorry to hear about this loss.

Irepo,

Thanks for the newspaper, and support.

I'm all for manditory boat training, and a seperate boating lic. Of course it still won't stop people from boating while drunk.

People got to stop doing this

No problem. The tragedy is heartbreaking. There is a lot more going on about this topic on the HB forum. According to this post and others over there, Havasu traffic was filled with idiots this weekend.

Thanks for the post, and prayers. Concrats on the skater !
Tres martin is awsome, some of the big boat manufactures are including his class with a new boat. Outerlimits, and I guess Skater. Thats great. Is his class avalible at Havasu or Mead?

Here's an idea, How about manditory boat traffic School if you get a ticket in a boat.
