"Clearly a case of excessive speed." WTF do these reporters know? Just what we need.

Our prayers to the family.

I read a report it was a 22. Truly sad. Who knows what happened, but keep in mind that you need to learn how to drive these things before you hold it to the pin. Not saying at all that is what happened here, but just be careful.

And by all means, if you have kids on board....SLOW DOWN!!!!

As Khadley put it last night on the phone....adults can make the diecision to ride in a fast boat and accept the risk, but typically kids don't make the decision. They usually don't have a choice or know what they are dealing with.

Thoughts and prayers to the family of the missing driver. This is about 15 miles down river from Cincy.

Nice talking with you last night hadley..

Later
