Perhaps tie him on some down riggers in some shark infested waters and do some trolling.....

Hey Tim -

Sorry to hear but maybe you should send this to the Wall Street Journal reporter who thinks we make " huge wakes "..

I think they may have found him.

The owner of one of the boats that was severely damaged was called today. But I guess until they see the bottom of the suspect's boat, they wouldn't say much more on the subject.

I saw pics of one of the boats today.

From what it looks like, the guy must have driven right over the transom of the moored boat.

Arneson drives destroyed, props wrecked, steering clevis bolts sheared in half. The boat was literally pulled around 180 degrees from its mooring from what I was told.

It was fortunate that it was tied to one of the closer moorings to the dock, so when it broke the mooring line the wind blew it right to the dock. But not until it rubbed another boat on the way in...
What a mess.

I am sure glad no one was hurt.

Let's hope the authorities can find enough evidence to charge the guy!

Wes,
This wasn't wake damage. It was just pure stupidity damage!

No, no...I understand.

I just thought that since the WSJ reporter only criticized our " Cigarette boats " for that kind of behavior maybe she should realize that there's a greater " idiot factor " when it comes to cabin cruisers !!

Sadly, it is a great opportunity for our fearless NJPPC leaders to rebutt the WSJ article, using this example.

Exactly how many sailboaters, kayakers, cabin cruisers and shorefront homes were damaged, washed away by the Cigarette boat's giant wakes the same weekend? How many punctured eardrums, divorces and shoreline home devaluations were caused by the ear splitting noise of said boats?
