This guy lives up on Lake Harding. He's a classic example of what happens when you drink in excess and boat at night. I don't know if anyone was injured but a friend of mine said he saw him walking, more of a stagger then a walk, home at 2 am. Then the next day around 11 am he's trying to get his boat off the rocks.

Prime example of what one SHOULD do: Stagger home before the cops arrive, sleep it off, and then get the boat. :D

I did not know that toons even went that fast. I thought max speed was like 10 or 15 mph.

About 10 years ago, my grandfather was gettin pretty old but still travelling around texas in his motorhome pulling his pontoon boat. They were on there way from from one lake/camp ground to another when a guy pulled up beside them and waved them down. Turns out he had forgotten to tie his pontoon boat down and it had come off the trailer about 5 miles back and he did not even notice! It had slid down the highway on the cans and then came to rest in the median still upright. They backed up to it, winched it back on the trailer, then put it in the water the next day. Never did have to do any repairs, it just scraped up the bottom of the cans pretty bad. A year later we convinced him to sell his motorhome and pontoon after he showed up at the house with the drivers side mirror all busted up and he didn't know what happened or what he had hit. I know I hate to see people running around like that, but it was very hard to basically take away their freedom and something they loved to do so much.

I also heard (not sure if it is true) that in Texas you cannot get a DUI for driving a boat drunk if the motor is 25hp or less......aka most pontoon boats.

No kidding. Don't you think the wind would have to be just about right to not just flip that thing over at 100 mph?
