I have been boating a LONG time. Alot longer than some of these perfect people and accidents can happen to anyone. Not everyone makes the right decisions everytime and it is very fortunate that no one was hurt. I am sure the operator has learned a valuble lesson and will be twice as carefull the next time.

Maybe the guy was an idiot and shouldn't be on the water. But, maybe he just made a mistake?

hit the proverbial nail on the head...

Yeah, let all the "perfect boaters" throw the first stone.

I could write a book on the dumb things I've done in my life. And not just boating.

I'm just lucky as hell I never hurt anyone.

Took me along time to smarten up.

I guess everyone is assuming all boats come with lanyards. I know mine didn't, don't ask me why, everyone else I know with the same boat has them but maybe the day they rigged mine the guy forgot to put one in. Anyhow I've been meaning to add one for long time now, I guess I should figure out where to order one and put on in. Do all boats come with lanyards as standard equipment?

My 81 Formula didn't have one, so I put one it. Very easy, and it just happened to fit where the cigarrette lighter was.
