I was there when it happened. From what I heard was that she jumped of the boat when the operator was backing the boat up to tie up to another boat. It was a rented boat.

Unfortunately...too many people follow the money trail. As much as I hate regulation, I do believe there should be a minimal boating license. I boat in Canada and have to at least have a boaters safety competency card...yah like don't smoke while putting fuel in craft.

This is so like the MSM always calling out SUV's in accidents. Would the MSM give some grace tot he SUV if a duelly creamed it?

Gratefully, there are less injuries on the water than in every day auto traffic. After a day on the water, I usually forget how many times I have said to myself "really" after seeing some goof really do something stupid with a boat or PWC.

I bet the victim (sorry for her injuries) didn't think twice jumping in the water behind the Chapparal - she should have know better - she should be educated that inboards are safer because the prop is way under and the swim deck most likely would have bumped her away...at least the marketing indicates that...

Looks like chaparral is drinking from the same cup of tea that we are. Wonder if the lawyers are going to successfully pitch it to a jury this time too. Judgements can sure take an arm an a leg these days.

Some people do stupid things when they drink alcohol. Some people just do stupid things.
