Default Fountain on the rocks

This happened last Friday at midnight in the Northern California Delta. The driver got disoriented, thought he was still in channel. He was doing about fifty or sixty. Nobody was hurt or arrested, the boat however suffered about $100K in damage. The boat sat there throughout the whole memorial weekend for everyone to see. It was removed today

Sorry about the white area, had to remove some text

Whoa..........50-60 is just too fast at night, even with a full moon (which I don't think there was).

We had a guy do the same thing out here about two or three years ago, he thought the runway lights at the airport were the channel markers and put a 29 Fever on the rocks. The boat was 4 mph faster with the fixed / blueprinted bottom it got.

Better hope the insurance company doesn`t do a Triple By-Pass on the claim (100k).

Triple Bye Pass is probably what I would need if that was mine.
