So sad to hear.

I have said this numerous times on this board and I always get pounded for saying it but it is the truth....

If running at night at over 10 mph a radar should be a mandatory piece of equipment.


RIP........

We just had a thread about what booze people carry on board their boats. What was described and consumed, was anything but "moderation". At the speeds these boats go, I don't think the skipper should be consuming any alcohol.

My condolences to the families of those lost.

Very sad start to the summer, I won't go out of my way to run at night if I don't have to.

From the pics it looks like he hit it pretty damn near square, with no deflection. A sudden stop from even 20 mph can do enormous amounts of damage to a flying human body. Let's not rush to judgement, there has been nothing about alcohol use in the news.
