Retards like that give a bad name to performance boating and make insurance expensive. It seems like its always at night, and always a drunk.
I'm sorry for the poor people in the houseboat.

Speedboat looks a lot like an open bow runabout to me.

My condolences to the victim on the houseboat.

Thanks lotoparty for the link. I was curious if 1) Alcohol was involved and 2) if lights were properly displayed.

Looks like they are asking these same questions. Either way, it is a shame. Boating is something you do for enjoyment, relaxation, stress relief, etc. this type of thing is very bad.

This is one of the reasons we do not run at night. We are either anchored off in a cove (with anchor light on) or we are in our slip. It is just too dangerous to run at night in a boat........at anything over and idle.

The guy that owns the houseboat is a really nice guy. He use to bring us his newspaper on the weekends after he was finished reading it. His boat was slipped on my dock at Perry. There were also a couple kids that got hurt with some minor injuries.

IT'S TO BAD THAT INSURANCE COMPANIES USE THIS KIND OF AN ACCIDENT TO RAISE INSURANCE RATES ON HI PERFORMANCE. AND YOU KNOW THEY DO. THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF HP ACCIDENTS ARE VERY SMALL IN THE TOTAL PICTURE.I DON'T THINK HP ACCIDENTS AT HI SPEEDS ARE FEW TO NONE.(YOU CAN'T USE HTM.THAT IS A BOAT BUILDER TESTING HIS PRODUCT.)
