a terrible frightening story, and yet another condemnation of power boaters. i doubt very much that there's much talk on their forums about all the maniac sailors out there.
it is a miracle that there was no tragedy beyond personal injuries, which are utterly unacceptable in themselves. but all three of you could have been killed.
and when it moves from the personal to the lawyers and insurance companies, I see red. as far as that individual is concerned he didn't even have to apologise or feel remorse, and the worse that happens if he is found at fault is his insurance goes up.
some days a good shotgun is better than a whole room full of lawyers.
