Im not saying dont talk about these accidents .. Just that it looks a little rediculous when there are two more on the front page every week..sad but true.
Yes much can be learned from some of them but most of it is just bad news.

Perhaps yuo can figure out how to change your slogan from gold member to something more fitting like AZZHAT
Not to stir the pot, but that seemed like a "personal attack".
I don't want to get caught up in this fray - but I think your retort was uncalled for.
Just my .02 - I'll stay out of it from here.

Thanks for that Bouy, I guess Pantyera1 thought the better of that and edited/erased before I could read....

I can see this gentlemen (and I use this term VERY loosely) did not really want to hear public opinion but just wanted to rant to hear himself rant.... that's fine...but kid!!!! pay your membership first or do it on your own time.

3,423 post since 2002 and you dont had the etiquette to pay $20 to the cause...further-more you have the sack to whine like a 16 year old girl about what content goes on here.... I'd like to hear public opinion on this matter.....& what has come to be know in the forum world as a "Leach" regarded in the same sentence as a "troll".... good for you.

your second post to your own thread should have gave me some clues as to the level of juvenile mentality you bring to the party , a flat " I dont" to Wobbles very straight forward answer to his question..... using terms like " tree hugging fun killers" & " liberal doo-gooders" I mean seriously... kid.... what a dumbchit

P.S no need to respond.... your response will probably not be worth the flexing of the sphincter that spit you out.... good luck with that "leachy1"

Ive been a paying member until a few months ago when I decided to take a break from the accident reports.
I removed my post not realizing it had been quoted as it seemed to offend some. But im glad you got to read it.
Lets see a 38 Donzi and a gold membership .. you are a big spender

I think it is important to understand what happened in these accidents so the same mistake is not repeated. I learn the good and the bad from this website and that makes me an educated boater that knows the risks. The only thing I could say is that sometimes those threads do need to stick with the facts.

I think that reading about these accidents serves a useful purpose, especially for the newer boat owners here.

So...you honestly mean to say that you have never once read a thread on this site about a boat accident and asked yourself "what would I have/should I have done in that circumstance"?


...If not we should all strive to be as perfect as you.

Usualy when I read about a boat accident im thinking what a tradgedy it is for the families and all involved. Who by the way deserve some respect during these times by not having it plastered all over the place.
It realy bothers me when I hear conjecture about an accident before the bodies are cold.
Two new accidents to discuss every week hmmm.
Cant we just have a list
Wear a lifejacket
Wear a lanyard
Leave the Jack alone
Etc. Etc

If the list you so desire worked, there wouldnt be any accidents to report.. Too bad it doesnt...

However, for some of us, reading about these accidents helps us to become better, more educated boaters.. In turn, we spread the word to those we run with, and help them become better educated, safer boaters.

BTW, there's a thing called personal decision.. If you decide to click on a thread that CLEARLY states it is about an accident, we cant help you break your moth to the flame mentality..

Bottom line, we can't just ignore this sht and bury our heads in the sand pretending these things don't happen....

It's not about sensationalism. It's about education,...
Some of the best input to come out of Florida since those extra 600 votes in Palm Beach county in 2000!
