Re: crash in Kent Narrows

The "Jetty" (Breakwater)they refer to is located just south of the bridge and across from the 'Jetty' restaurant. It separates the Narrows from Prospect is also a barrier used to separate the the speed boats during 'Thunder on the Bay' racing series. It is definitely in the 6 knot speed restriction zone.

That whole area is a 6 knot zone starting where all the marinas and outside restuarants/ dock are. A boat striking the jetty at 6 knots ( if they were doing this) would do some damage for sure, but throw them out of the boat. Must have been traveling at a higher rate of speed than allowed.

Tragic. Such a shame.

I assume that it is the one to the west of the channel when approaching from the south.

I'm not sure exactly but I bet it was the same one where, last year while in Eastern Bay, we heard on the radio the CG broadcasting about a 50' Hatteras being smashed against a jetty near Kent Narrows.

Probably aren't that many I would guess?

I went through the Narrows on Saturday on my way to the Wye. Where is the jetty they are referring to?

bandaidmd It would appear they didnt.
A 21 foot whaler is a decent size boat,One could make the assumption that the toxicology report may sjed some light on this.
