Re: Knapps Narrows Incident - Post Mortem

The guy was obviously waving and motioning for you not to approach. Wind and current aside, If someone is motioning to stay away with everything they have, stay away. If some one say's duck... I duck, I don't ask why. If I'm tying my shoe and I hear stop... I stop. It could have been a diver in the water, or debris. I would of come about, held a postion and called the office and ask why the doofus on the dock was jumping and waving at me. Your approach with the elements has been discussed but the mistake was approaching at all.
