    Well, the boat is named, "Nap Time". That boat is hell for stout.

    The owner was deaf and had the boat on autopilot. He was in the cabin not watching. :eek:

    Just watched it again. I like the guy who yells at the boat and waves his arms like they can't hear the air horn but they're going to hear you yelling.

    And shot with luck, fortunately . . . a little different angle & that becomes a tragic event.

    Deaf owner @wanative ? Not sure if you're kidding or making a joke. But deaf, dumb, stupid seem to apply. And I agree with @Jim Ficklin that it could have been tragic and find it a miracle that it wasn't.

    Years ago we were motoring by Point No Point and watched a large sailboat under power plow into the boats that were fishing.
    After all hell broke loose, a man and woman came on deck while putting their clothes on.

    dumb shit. Way too many people think they can handle the thing, and haven't a clue what they're doing. I don't have much sympathy for a moron like that.

    I have seen (like other's here, I am sure) the massive Trident subs and their huge wake go through the Strait and wondered what would happen if they hit a ferry.

    Be one expensive wreck

    Don't know what would happen if a trident hit something but I can tell you what happens when you get to close to one of those subs...

    I read the guy was in the head taking a leak. Probably best to throttle back in that case.
