I used to jetski in the chain.....know that area like my back yard.....fell off once and was scratched on something.....have a scar on my knee from it....took FOREVER to heal and it now shows a scar like i had some horrible bicycle accident at some point early in life! I wont go in that water again if i can help it! Stick you hand in the water and it all but dissapears about 6" down!

I grew up boating there like countless other people, Never again. That place is a breeding ground for idiots coming from Blarneys Island

No one is happy around here as this is the first incident of this kind to happen to any Sunsation and until we know all the facts, let’s keep the guys who got injured first and foremost in our thoughts. Once we can determine what happened, we’ll make a post on all the boards that have info regarding this.
A class act!

Dave,
Thanks for chiming in on this one. I think it says allot about your character and the type of business you run for you to step up to the plate and jump in this snake pit. I appreciate you wanting to keep the boating public aware of what actually happened there instead of the usual speculation. I hope all on board end up well.

Fionn

Yea, much of it less than that! Too bad depth finders don't work on mud and grass!
