Oops. Man, did I misread that or what?....Gotta slow down. Sorry.
I thought it was just another one of those idiot journalism moments.

Just got off the phone with Youngquist. It was their boat, but no Youngquists were on it. It appears everyone is going to be okay.

The McCullers and the Youngquists have been in business for years. The younger McCullers, that was driving the boat, started their medical equipment business with the younger Youngquist. Their fathers are partners in the drilling and building business and are bankrolling the medical side. These people have so much money, it's rediculous. It doesn't surprise me at all them sharing boats, helicopters, the jet, etc.

One of the last times I was at their office, Tim was complaining about the FAA making him take two pilots in their Lear. He was going to Georgia to look at a 200 acre tract to build a development on.

They used to race offshore and most recently had a 160mph Skater that he ran up the river at 120 (speed limit is 25).

I sell them trucks occaisionally, so our relationship is mostly professional.
