Hell, it happens in broad daylight! Just the other day:

One dead, one injured in Keys boat collision - Florida Keys - MiamiHerald.com

Here is a post from someone who knew the victims

"The deceased and her husband were my former law partners. I was in a partnership on my first power boat with them. They are very experienced boaters and divers in their mid-60's.

They were at anchor and the husband was diving. The deceased was thrown from the boat upon collision. She died in her husband's arms while in the water waiting for a helicopter.

The boat that killed her was on autopilot."
