It's a wonder that boat insurance isn't more expensive.

Greetings,
Those videos are of knowledgeable boaters under relatively (for that particular area) mild conditions. In those cases it would be fun, sorta. There are other You-Tube vid's of not so knowledgeable boaters under sportier circumstances at the same location.

You look at the people bow riding and see them drop 4 to 5í and land on the fiberglass decks, agree compression fractures seem likely. And the small kids bow riding with out a PFDÖ

And in the spirit of that video, a recent real world event:

https://www.providencejournal.com/st...e/10194552002/

A highlight: “Two boats sank, two operators were cited for boating under the influence, and two revelers were treated for injuries."

Plan now for next year.

We just had Aquapalooza this weekend. 1000 boats jammed together. 2 sunk, a few folks ended up in the hospital coupled with some arrests there was fun for all. It truely is amazing how stupid folks can be on the water.

We stayed far away.
