I thought THT would like to try and make this guy famous...

Apparently an Azimut named ZENJA, though might not be correct....

Captain and/or owner (if a paid Capt. then both) should be jailed and fined on top of paying for damages. if a licensed capt. he should lose his ticket. if someone was on or in the process of getting on or off on of those boats, they would have been hurt, possibly killed. all because the impatient azz-hat didn't want to wait for the bridge. like they aren't waiting in comfort!

I would have untied and chased that boat down after filming the damage. They should be responsible for all damage and captain should be reprimanded by the authorities in some manner.

Yes very true, this could have been a real tragedy. What a clown, I hope they roast him in court.

Needs to to be jailed. That could have gone VERY wrong.

Kind of like the 108’ Sunseeker “SeaDoo for Dad”. That went blowing through the C&D canal a few years ago causing havoc.

was there a speed limit in that area. if not he didnt break any laws except recklessness by cutting the bridge close.

it looks like those boats werent tied to the docks correctly either. no boat should be crunching the dock from a boats wake.

not excusing the idiot for what he did.
