This happened today, I think down in Florida

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

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

What an ass!! You are responsible for your wake and I hope what ever damage he caused will be rectified.

I'm not sure...I could hear what sounds like fiberglass hitting the dock...I think the comments said the top was hitting.....Perhaps more info will come out.

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.

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!

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

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.
