If you pull over at 160 thats your problem

Bad enough we can't even catch the 70 mph wave runners anymore. Once they know you can't catch them, they F with you all summer long

This has got to be one of the stupidest ideas that I've ever heard.

Maybe they should just quit letting phukin terrorists into the country.

Some years back there was a goverment development program underway that was to develop at system to stop
small Hi-Speed boats from crashing into ships while in Ports.
This peogram was well underway before the COLE was attacked in Yemen in 2000.
The program was started because 3 Hi-Performance Boats drove up on a crowded beach in the Mediterranean sea, When
they ran aground all were pitched out of the boats and none
of the bombs went off.
The Navy Bought a XRACE Boat and its was rigged with remote controls, I was involved in the testing and have been
VERY upset because then Pres. Bill Clinton called of the testing
and still wonder "What If". There are other people who are
on this board who were Navy Divers working on the project.
I would like to contact some one in the goverment so they know that a lot of testing was done on this problem. Mike J.
a Very bad

Not sure why they can't just increase their survelance. I mean how hard is it to spray the first boat that comes within a hundred feet. Maybe post signs all over the boat - "come within 100ft and you will be shot." I guess that would be too easy.
