At the risk of sounding harsh, I couldn't care less if someone wants to do themselves in. I just don't want to be hit head-on or broadside by some dic&head who's out of control. I doubt some drunk, chubby guy tossed off the back would even scuff the gel on my bottom.

HHMMM the same people riding, like that will be the first to sue everyone, and use the "its not my fault, I' stupid"

As for dumb things during PR, I think a real question needs to be addressed, which is dumber, riding on th back of a 40mph boat, or boats running 140mph + crisscrossing paths during a PR.

The above is why I no longer participate in PR.

The reason for my post was to point out the few stupid things at a few poker runs. What I posted is fortunately the "exception" and not the "rule" to most poker runs around the country.

Yeah......but death and mayhem caused by irresponsible boaters WILL effect all of us.

Think Insurance
Think Speed Limits and other unwelcome legislation aimed at powerboaters.

The lifejacket tied to the back of the boat is a classic.
