Every time that video comes up, I think about some over-trained Coasties who think everyone knows and abides by every rule of the water. It doesn't matter which boat has the right of way, avoid at all costs.

That's why I try to peer down side street while driving. Don't want to be the next victim on "World Worst Drivers"

I think sometimes our egos get the best of us on the water and we go through an "I'm not moving, I was here first" kinda mindset. I know I catch myself doing it sometimes. But I try to keep remembering that its everybodys playground and theres no place for bullies, only common sense.
that is what i was thinking. didnt see boat until it hit ue in the rear. wtf

says out of McKinley marina (Milwuakee) the coast gaurd in that town ran into the front of my 38 scarab many years ago (I lost power as was not even running at the time) and took a chunk out of the bow

the story is to long to type but i could write a book on debacals i have seen by the so called experts
