Speed and alcohol don't mix very well. Should have went fishing!

I bet he drove like an idiot on the roads too. Karma got him.
No wake means NO WAKE. For everyone, not just some of us, like this guy believed.
Very sorry for his family.

Just glad he didn't injure anyone else. Couldn't care less what happens to him, he deserved it.

Why is it that any boat that was going faster than idle speed at the time of an incident is called a "speedboat"?

This boat was identified in the report as a 1979 AquaSport Center Console. Last time I checked, AquaSport Center Consoles were "fishing" boats that are capable of going fast. Becasue they can go fast, they are not "Speedboats"...

Just another example of how sensationalism is taking the facts away from journalism.

Good job, SS. The Sun-Sensational...

1979 Aqua Sport for sale... cheap needs dried blood removed and broken teeth removed from inside hull, otherwise in good condition.

I have little to no sympathy for boaters who drink and drive- thankfully no one else was on board. He musy have been preparing for the regatta. Dumass!

Put this idiot at the bottom of the "to repair" list. A jerk like that doesn't deserve medical attention when there are other law abiding respectable people who are waitnig for treatment for their maladies. You stupid drunken sot.

I was right!

Narrow Canal + fast boat + low-clearance water pipe + a few brewskis + poor judgement = Traumatic Head Injury.

A speedboat is a small motorboat designed to move quickly, used in races, for pulling water skiers, as patrol boats, and as fast-moving armed attack vessels by the military. Even inflatable boats with a motor attached which may be serving as a high speed patrol boat or as a plodding pedestrian dinghy providing transport to and from a mooring buoy are motorboats.

There are three popular variations of powerplants: inboard, inboard/outboard, and outboard. If the engine is installed within the boat, it's called a powerplant; if it's a removable module attached to the boat, it's commonly known as an outboard motor.

An outboard motor is installed on the rear of a boat and contains the internal combustion engine, the gear reduction (Transmission), and the propeller.

Good job, white trash.... way to articulate your freedom to be stupid and reckless. Hope you didn't have a family at home, all worried about you, that you are supposed to be supporting right now.

Good job, well done.

Man, at 37 he is still drinking and speeding on a boat in a canal at night? Unless there was some sort of life threating emergency, this just sceams ignorance. Glad no one else was hurt.
