Goldman said Eigelshoven told him his vessel couldn't keep up with the Posners, and he had slowed down to about 75 mph waiting for them to circle back and around.

``That's when he saw the boat coming too close and started turning hard left,'' said Goldman. ``He realized they were coming at him. He turned away from them. That's the last he remembered.''

Efforts to reach Eigelshoven and McLennan Tuesday were unsuccessful.

Goldman said he and Eigelshoven visited Stuart Posner in the hospital Tuesday, where he is in intensive care for injuries to his head and upper body. He is able to speak, but has not yet been told about Steven Posner's death, Goldman said.

Saw both of those boats in Key West and both great looking boats. That MTI was fast! Sorry to hear about the unfortunate accident and deaths of someone who loved life and boating so much! RIP.
