Very Sad indeed. And a wake up call to say the least.

Wardey, we do not run over 70 very often, but I am definitely purchasing a couple of inflatable vests for my wife and I to wear this summer when we are out runnin' hard with other club members. I have put that purchase off too long.

I am not positive, but it looks like the boat a friend of mine bought in August brand new. His deal fell through and he never took delivery. Was this a new boat?

5:00 news stated that they still have not recovered Chris's body. The current in that particular place is pretty strong and we have a front blowing through tonight. In one of the posts some one implied that they did not use a jacket if they could swim to shore.....a jacket is not particularly used to keep you floating so you can swim to shore.....a jacket is used if you become knocked unconscious to keep you from sinking to the bottom so help can find you to assists. Like I always tell my son, crashing in a boat is not like laying a motorcross bike down, when you lay there until help arrives. In a boat crash, you will sink if you do not have a jacket on. We are all guilty of running hard with out a jacket but things like this should wake us up abit if nothing else. Dave

My thoughts go out to all of Chris's family and friends during this hard time. This tragic accident is another reminder of how dangerous our sport is and how important floation devices can be. Gods Speed to all.

Mike (Jammin 1), That was a nice interview you did on Chris on Fox 13. I just wish it was a happier topic. As you know, our hearts and prayers go out to all those involved. Hopefuly his body is recovered soon so they can lay him to rest. Dave
