So you sit around and wait to comment and criticize the article? Maybe the boat had a mechanical problem and the driver didn't have any control, ever think of that ?

Dang boats should be outlawed just like guns and cigarette smoking in public. They all kill people you know.

ITs a cluster frack out there anymore. Ive seen the decline of "boat sense" over the last 30 years. Its as if people are dying off and being replaced by clueless idiots. A boat should never be going fast enough near a dock to ever even come close to hitting it. People like this boat driver are entitled to use the lakes. It may not be safe for you out there with them but that's your problem. Throw in dirtbag on a jetski and you've got a something similar to a downtown minneapolis intersection on a friday afternoon. People speed by our place 20 feet off of our dock in 3 feet of water. The brown trail of sand and mud being dug up by their skeg can be seen roiling behind them. Clueless idiots.

Unless you know the whole story, i would say it is un-necesssary to comment in regards to who is at fault or what caused the accident. It is unfortunate that 2 people lost their lives in a tragic accident period. If the driver is at fault, that person will have to live with it for the rest of their life... Think of how it would be if it were your kid, your friend etc.

What if the steering cable broke causing the boat to veer sharply to one side and he couldn't stop ? You probably never drove a boat in your life.
