There is no counter to this argument. If it's not understood then you deserve to have your boat rammed by an ocean going vessel.

It looked to me as a crewmember of the sailboat fell overboard as the tanker approached and they were attempting to haul that person back into the boat as it was hit.

i give the capt. credit he is in a race, he knew that if he waited for the tanker to pass he's done. So he went all in. he might not of judged the tanker properly or thought it would slow down, but you really have to admire the size of his balls for a blowboater...

Looks to me like they jumped, thinking they were gonna get hit, which they did. All the skipper did was tried to get by the bow and failed.....

Our local blow boat organization took $43,500.00 of your fuel tax money from the Clean Vessel Grant to build a marina facility on a public lake. They then have denied all access to Fishing and power boats, Against the terms of the grant that state it must be open to all boats.....

Look up CVA grant requirements. Sign our petition to right this wrong below.
