Key West Residents--February/March 1988--Help Appreciated

This may seem strange ... I am not trying to stir up trouble ... or cause anyone any pain or bad thoughts.

I was 12 in 1988--one of childhood friends was involved in a fatal jet ski accident at Smathers Beach. At the time--all the people around me did everything possible to shield me from the situation.

After searching on the internet ... basically the only thing that I can find is copies of a lawsuit involving the jet ski owner and the young man's family. I could care less about the lawsuit and hold no ill will towards anyone or anything involved. From reading the appeal (from the lawsuit) it also mentions that the young man riding the jet ski ran into or was hit by a fishing boat named Vitamin C.

I know it is a long shot ... but does anyone remember anything about this accident? Or even know someone who can point me in the right direction? I am not interested in the lawsuit at all. I am interested (with a great deal of nervousness) as to what happened that day.

Please understand that I do not want to make anyone angry .. and I am not looking to stir up trouble.(And I am willing to prove that if needed). Thanks for any help anyone can provide.
