I've been hit so many time by idiots I've given up. The worst time was when my boat was brand new I got hit at anchor in broad daylight by an idiot in a 46 foot Irwin. He steamed right at me until he hit me end on. We had to chase him to stop him. Claims to be a "professional" in the charter business. Problem was nobody was keeping a proper lookout while steaming out of an anchorage. The guy on the wheel was looking at a laptop in a corner of the cockpit. Ruined my winter not to mention 20K damage. On top of that he didn't have his insurance papers with him and this was in the Bahamas. A lot of idiots out there. My friends kid that I must have a target on the side of my boat.
