Think you have enough outboards on that boat, Danny?

/Compensating?

You need that many if you want to park on the jetty.

He is the head of a company managing $47 BILLION in assets and he owns that little piece of shiat boat? GUILTY I SAY!

There were dangerous conditions of the jetty. It was dark.

And as the pilot of the craft he is responsible for taking that into consideration

CEO? No way he is going to jail. He got away with boating drunk and no one will get compensation. We know how America works.

Hi, this is boat number, um...(what number are we?) (five-five)...boat fifty-five. We're on a jetty!

"On the boat with him were [...] and Jarret and Lauren Silagyi, who required more intense medical treatment."

They appear to be a couple who bought a boat dealership in Cicero Indiana in May last year.  Not sure how that would directly get them down in Florida on a new-bought boat at midnight, but seems like a connection. Be a bit ironic if they sold him the boat just before he farked them up in it.

"Lauren Silagyi, 33, has had two brain surgeries and a knee surgery since the accident. "

I would really, REALLY be looking at the bank account statements of the police or anyone who did blood work on him.

It says first time out on this boat, but if it's his first time out boating I might give it a pass, otherwise no one goes that fast that close to shore.
And a boat of the caliber most definitely has lit GPS.

/I also find it amusing that the article only bothered to give the age of one passenger
//as far as I noticed that is

You know, I think we should have a Star Trek where Florida-man is the captain.

Humble bragging that the 47 YO boat driver has a 26YO GF.

1) yachts are heavy, slow and burn a heck of a lot of fuel. They are still great for longer period excursions. Smaller boats for shorter periods (and more rush from the speed)
2) someone please explain to me why an insurance company, of all businesses, would hold that much in assets. This isn't an airline company, this isn't a real estate company, this isn't even a restaurant chain! If it was me, I'd automate the whole thing, have it on the cloud, and ANY staff that I needed I would have them work from home. Outsource the whole thing.
3) 47 darn billion?!!

Someone please explain.

Anyone else notice they guy's fiancee is young enough to be his daughter? Maybe not a big deal, but with reports with whats trending on Phub wonder if he has a son who would be about her age.

TommyDeuce: Think you have enough outboards on that boat, Danny?


I really don't get this fashion of "wall of outboards."  I understand two for redundancy. Three is you're insanely paranoid (as my Dad was). But why four? Your speed is limited by sea conditions, not horsepower.

It's like loud pipes on a Harley, or lens flare in a J.J. Abrams movie.

I find your lack of firth disturbing.

Because Merc 400s cost $50K each (and right now delivery is delayed 6 months because of demand).

Live and Let Die?

State Trooper : That look like a boat stuck in the Sheriff's car there, Eddie?
Eddie : Boy, where you been all your life? That there's one of them new car-boats.


Correct.
