Yes, the problem is almost always, ignorance !! Ignorance on the lack of knowledge of how to operatethe boat, or too busy to go to school and learn. There are some that are just plain mistakes and accidents though...

OHH trust me 6-8' waves crank the wheel in full, at 70mph you can spin it, again nearly any boat can be spun or rolled if you push the wrong conditions at completre unsafe speed. Kind of like rolling a car, if you try hard enough you can.

[QUOTE People sue for everything now.[/QUOTE]


AMEN!!! There are some A$$holes out there that just want to sue just to try and make a point even if nothing was done wrong! Kinda like they have a hidden agenda of their own or they are all screwed up in the head or something!

You hit the nail in the head right there. I just sat in on a cival deposition where a guy got confused, stopped on the train tracks and got hit (killed) by an Amtrak train. Lawyers for Amtrak and GM (he was driving a GM) were there because the family was suing both.

Dipsh!t, screws up and gets taken out and somehow it's amtrak and Gm's fault!? I'm sure the family just wants to settle out of court.
