I agree, but really the rules of the road here, is who the give-way boat and the stand-on boat is. I hope the stand-on boat stays put.

Give it another week. Too soon and they forget.

Scott B, That's mostly common sense but we do cover it all in our driver's meeting in the morning.

Has anyone noticed the boat in the bottom of the page in the first 35-45 seconds of this video? Just seemed unsafe from my vantage point

We just happened to catch that picture and for the record we do post about the event and even had it on the local news.
Like it was stated earlier, it is a public lake and we cannot close it off, therefore, we do coordinate several police, wildlife and coast guard boats around the lake. Our drivers meeting covers the laws and courtesies on the lake.

The boats went around the guy, he was probably overwhelmed by it all and felt like he was in the wrong place.....

The something in the water was probably wood...just comes with the territory on this particular lake

No matter how much you try to plan, there's usually someone that did not know. All one can do it try.

(A couple of years ago, for the NY poker on the Hudson, the had the swim around Mahattan and the poker run on the same day. And on anther year, they had a kayak across the Hudson as well as the poker run on the same day.) Jeez, I sound like ............ "And one time, in band camp ...."
