Speeding boat takes out women on dock | Watch the video - Yahoo! Screen

IN THIS VIDEO, ITS PRETTY CLEAR THAT THE BOAT THAT SWAMPS THE DOCK WITH PEOPLE STANDING BY IS EITHER A FERRY BOAT OR MAYBE EVEN A TOUR BOAT.
THIS KINDA CRAP GIVES CAPTAINS A BAD RAP. ONCE YOU GET A LICENSE AND THEN WORK WITH IT, ARE THEY NOT SUPPOSED TO BE PROFESSIONAL?

NOTHING PROFESSIONAL ABOUT KNOCKING PEOPLE DOWN WITH YOUR WAKE.

EVEN IF ITS IN TAILAND!

About 10% of the lobstermen in my area never make it home. Ah, them lobstermen are use to that sort of thing:confused:

Just because you memorized some multiple choice test questions and the coast guard gave you a piece of paper saying you did doesn't make you any smarter or give you any more common sense.

Yeah..... All the recreational boats are angels...always our fault.

Boat dealer can sell someone a million dollar boat with no license. Right out of the showroom 30 knots down the bay rocking the shit out of everyone yet people always look at the partyboat guys.....

I'm not perfect, none of us are. But boy, since there "schools" have shown up, no one wants to learn any of the "hands on " seamanship ways. Turn on my Chartplotter, and make sure my policy with my preferred towing service is all paid up, and GO!

Ronny, I hate going into Boston unless I have too!
If this guy is running his own vessell, he' a jerk. If he has a hired "captain", even more reason to shake head.

Argee Orient....especially when they anchor in middle of channel.

Curmudgeon....your right,,ya can't legislate out stupidity!
