Default HELL OF A WEEK!!! Another Crash

Last thursday we had an accident on the lake leaving one killed and subsequent search and recovery for 2 days.

Merc was down for the photo shoots on new products, Skater (Sweet Boat out of Atlanta) with the 300 outboards......on Monday afternoon.
Today, photo shoot was an Allison in the am - another Sweet boat --- Naturally <Grin>
This afternoon, another shoot with a different boat. During the shoot, the Helecopter crashed.... details are sketchy at this time ...

helecopter made it to 4 ft water before hitting ... When we got there it was laying on it's side in water with the emergency skid floats inflated.

Took photo's on regular film camera

unbelievable.

It would apear from my reading the post that a mercury powered skater named allison was "being intimate" another boat who was "not covered" then one or both of them crashed into a helicopter..
