Again. Don't pontificate. My 30 foot 90 mph boat is operated in a safer manner than your boat. It isn't about the speed, and accidents happen. I know (hopefully not knew) Flash, and if he went by you at 40 feet, either it was in a safe manner, or you were somewhere you didn't need to be. There are two sides to every near miss. Which were you on?

The damage I've seen confirms what I first suspected. This was not likely a head on crash as has been reported. That area of the lake does not have a blind corner where this might happen. There is a cove with a marina in the immediate area. It's possible that the Nortech was leaving a card stop and Flash was travelling, at speed, and at a 90 degree angle to the Nortech leaving the cove. I know this area well and it's the only explanation I can arrive at. Otherwise the two boats would have been able to see one another easily.

Whatever happened, it's a tragic loss and our prayers go out to the families and also everyone who was involved directly at the crash scene. Nothing can prepare us for this kind of thing.
THE VIDEO THAT I HAVE SEN SHOWS FLASH'S BOAT UPSIDE DOWN AND IS MISSING THE BACK 1/4 OF THE BOAT.

A VERY SAD DAY IN BOATING

Is it possible to view the whole video? Why does it only play for a second or two for me?

Shane,

It's got to be in your system. It plays but not much fun to look at.
