Morons ;?

Trying to set a speed record?

Can you tell what type of buoy they hit?

Running 150mph in fog is dumb...hence, the morons comment.

The buoy looked like a "lighted buoy" to me. Similar to these... https://www.boat-ed.com/washington/h...on-System-ATON

From the article...


According to reports, the accident occurred about 30 minutes into the record-setting attempt when clear skies gave way to dense fog, reducing visibility to just 50 to 100 feet.
I don't care what they were doing...all I know is the guys driving/throttling are absolute idiots.

Dude calls some kids selling Coca-Cola cans out of their trunk stupid dangerous, but doesn't understand that going 150mph in 50ft visibility is moronic behavior? ;?:o

Looks like the buoy was on something. Crack, weed, who knows??? Damn thing jumped right in front of a raceboat. ;?

Someone could've easily lost a head...

Lets race in the ocean at full speed in the fog. Watch this. Dumbass.
