Although not hit by a boat my dock was damaged by a reckless boater. He has pleaded not guilty for misdemeanor reckless operation of a vessel. he goes to court in March.

"Pier pressure" likely the cause.

Recreational Fishing Boat Run Over

A friend forwarded this to us. Three were fishing the Buoy10/Columbia River for salmon last August when their boat got run over. Fortunately no one was hurt. Look at the propeller tracks at about 45 seconds into it.

Videos like this make me think of if we need any kind of boater's test to ensure competence on the water.

I don't think any kind of testing would have prevented that. You can't test for fix stupid.

I don't know if this video has been posted already. If it has I apologize.
Very scary!

I see that it has been posted under title Anchor Watch. Sorry about that. It freaked me out so much I posted before looking thoroughly.

I don’t recall seeing that video. Very scary.

Not sure that I think that “psychological trauma” is legit in this case, but I hope they win a reasonable suit for the loss of not only boat and gear but a good day of fishing ruined.

I did see the other post with the video, but I'm glad you posted this "the rest of the story", as I was wondering what the hell the other guy was doing!

I like this quote from the article: told investigators he “couldn’t see where he was driving because he was sitting down and the dash of his boat was blocking his view”.

Yeah, who really need to see where you are going at 20 knots?

I guess what happens next is the guy in the fast boat sues his boat's manufacturer for designing a faulty dashboard

... now if he had been in a sensible trawler doing about 7 kts... the fishing guys would've had time to get out of the way....

What I want to know is, "Does he have a license to operate anything other than a screwdriver?" If you're the state of Oregon, how do you let a person who has made a statement like that, operate anything that can exceed 1 mile per hour.
