I hauled a boat for the insurance agent that insured 4 of the boats in the crash and he is not having a good day.

great weekend for offshore boating

say bye bye to poker runs

Glad no one was killed.

Tank,
I'm afraid you are right, I think this is really going to affect the ability of these poker run organizers to get insurance for these events. It's really a shame to see such nice hardware all tore up.

It becomes more apparent every day that the insurance companies could possibly be right. Too many underqualifed, irresponsible owners that are in way over their heads.

If it happens at the start it confirms what OSG has told me he does and what I have been doing since.

-Start 10-15 seconds after all the cowboys leave climbing over one another and pass the ones you can one at a time from the back controlling much more than you could in the mess up front.

Rumor has it, that the 30 Skater with the Arnesons had some issues with one of the drives and a number of its mounting bolts being broken before the run. The saftey director and resident offshore expert told the owner it would be fine to run like that.

To continue the rumor that maybe will be backed up with arial photos soon, that the drive in question on the Skater broke loose at the start causing the chain reaction.

More info. and photos to come.
