"Witnesses say thick fog in the area may have been to blame for the incident"
I hate when news people say this. Weather conditions don't cause wrecks, peoples actions do.

Somehow they'll twist this all up by throwing in a line like "he is a CCW holder that believes in the 2nd Amendment", or "the victim was a black male teenager" and then throw in the fact that the owner, who may more may not have been driving was "a middle aged white male"... Lol. We as a country are just waiting on the next distraction to get up in arms about. What say ye?

So how fast do you think this guy was going in thick fog? We will presume his radar was broken of course.. I mean that is the other reason to have it aside from seeing birds working right?

Sunset Grill: Would like that order delivered?

Boat Owner: No I'll stop in to pick it up.

How the heck do you get that thing back on its trailer? Drag it out and use a crane to put it on the trailer? Would that be a "salvage" by SeaTow/BoatUS standards?

I'm with you guys regardless of about of fog, he was traveling much too fast for the conditions. Now what we don't know if 'twas driver error or mechanical breakdown. Too soon to blame the captain.

The guy on Fox News just said the owner was going "full throttle" at maybe 40-50 MPH when he hit and that the boat is very expensive because the 300HP motors cost maybe $15k each and the boat lists for $400 making it a half of a million dollar accident... :shake my head:

I don't know if he has even been on a boat before.

Oh yeah, I forgot he said it was a 40' boat too.
