just saw another thread on a night boating accident in OH
lots of bashing on the newpaper on line comments as well. the boater of the "cigarette" according to some left the scene.
Yeah he had a huge hole in his boat and was trying to get , an injured passenger and sinking boat to safty, plus he called and reported everything while coming in. No one knows who caused the accident yet they started bashing the rich, spoiled, drunk speed boat community. Makes me realize how those of us that drive fast boats are hated.

It is so stressful, I stand up and look over the windshied peering continuously in each direction, trying to be as alert as I can while helping Ian navigate. I hate it, I am worried the whole time, so I can not understand why someone would do it by choice.
On Lake Winnipesaukee their is a proposed law for a 45 daytime/25 nightime limit waiting for the govs signature. i'm actually OK with a nighttime limit in the 25-30 mph range but daytime on a big lake 45 is ridiculous.

This is a "cruiser" designed by Formula for speeds approaching 70-MPH - - take a look at those steps and propellers, then search the comments at www.offshoreONLY.com. Even the Coast Guard's vaunted "Rule 6" wouldn't have helped here, while a speed limit would have saved Steph.

Grief for the passenger, yes: Isn't there a website where we can leave our condolences?

I have no comment at this time as I am friendly with those involved... aside of my thoughts and prayers go out to all.

However - as for state rep James Pilliod and this comment in the paper - State Rep. James Pilliod, a sponsor of the speed limit bill, (said)
"I'm sorry to hear this," he told the New Hampshire Union Leader. "We knew that sooner or later there would be a major accident. This happens to be a very symbolic one."


Hey AZZHOLE - how about a little sensitivity for those individuals and families involved!?!?!?!

speaking of bass boats, yesterday morning I was on our small lake spotting as a friend was skiing, we were the lead boat on an narrow spot where there is a small (tiny) island in the center and a unpassable sand bar on the other side. Just as skier was adjacent to the island a bass boat started bearing down on us from behind. He sped up so fast he was behind our skier and then passed him by no more than 10 ft and cut between us and the island and kept going at probably 60+ miles per hour. Thankfully the skier was experienced and managed to keep his cool and not fall. We could only imagine what would have happened had he become rattled and fell. I actually wanted to give the guy the benefit of the doubt like he maybe he had a medical emergency or something. However when we caught up with him at the launch he was taking his time unloading and his only passenger looked about 12, some lesson he is teaching the kid. We got the MC numbers, not sure what will happen, but a cop on a nearby pontoon witnessed it as well. Of course all you ever hear about is the bad offshore's and the poor fishermen in their small craft. So no matter what's your style, there are azzholes on all types of boats.

I have only boated at night a handful of times and hated every minute of it. A few years ago I went to the fire works on the thames river and drove back to the CT river that night. I decided after that trip I would no longer boat at night because for me the distances are difficult and I have found my GPS not to be accurate all the time. My condolences and prayers to everyone involved.

I fully agree!! I sent in a coment to the Union leader that this was a time for prayer and condolences not a political comentary on the speed limit . It was not posted!so much for unbias media!
