Angry Captain-less Boat Plows Into Catalina

Here we go again.

If you're alone and you're not at the helm the boat should be in neutral or the ignition OFF!

Dumb ass newspaper 'reporters' writing 'articles'...

What are the odds of this happening? Damn longshot, I'd say, unless---
HE HAD THE AUTOPILOT TURNED ON. He was a mile out of LA or Long Beach, pointed and clicked, left the bridge and went to clean a bit. Was the possibility of this mentioned in the article?

No other way this could have happened. Catalina ain't all that big and is TWENTY SIX MILES OUT.

do it, cap. we're waiting.
