Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale.

Three people were on the boat at the time of the crash, two women and a 3-year-old. The woman operating the boat was a newer boater, Hogg said."

Phew. I was worried for a moment that the boat was being controlled by two chocolate Labrador retrievers.

No thanks. I enjoy boating, but no thanks. All proper respect to the natural forces involved but it is the people that scare the fark out of me.

These cases show the importance of using spacers and bumpers to keep the boat away from the dock and pier.

You don't know the power of the dock side.

"Landed on top of a dock" sounds so much nicer than "crashed into a dock."

I hear they call it red-vining.

"Now hit the brakes"

-land lubbers last words (more likely from being strangled by the captain than the impact of the pier).

dual engines + new/unskilled/untrained/probably grandfathered out of the boaters safety cert requirement = problems.

i was surprised to see it wasn't a Boston Whaler.  the north shore of L Huron is lousy with them and every single one is piloted by a PITA POS that is constantly causing problems (usually an white woman between 50 and 70).
