I think we have at least three threads discussing this at the moment. Maybe the mods could combine them.

Re: Two boats collide in Chesapeake, one rides over top of the other

Years ago, I had an 11 1/2' homemade (not by me) dinghy that I added a lateen sail, centerboard and rudder to. I used it on the Intracoastal in the Pompano Beach area, and I always seriously worried about getting run over by some idiot in a powerboat. I took one of my younger brothers out fishing one night, and on top of full running lights I duct-taped a large 6-volt lantern to the mast to illuminate the sail. He teased me unmercifully...

One night about two weeks later, someone in a large Sea Ray (or similar boat) plowed into a water taxi - that had running lights, Christmas lights strung from stem to stern, and illuminated billboards on either side. I asked little brother, "still think I was being irrationally paranoid?"
CVAT and mbianka like this.

Try not to let the urgent override the important.

Itís the name of a lake I frequented often, years back, named by an Indian tribe in NY. It means good water. The lake is spring fed and crystal clear.
