actually I think the boat wasn't going any faster than
40 because it would have gone clear over the houseboat

Just got the Lawrence paper a couple hours ago and saw the cover. had a thought that it may have been your boat H2O, but it seemed a bit smaller.
I am really shocked to here abut something like this on Perry. Usually this type of thing happens at LOTO. The speed/ski boat was being driven by people 19-22 yrs old and apparently the house boat was idle and unknown whether or not the houseboat nav lights were on.

Good to hear for sure that it wasn't you H20!
