Hilarious! I already have 10,416 1/2 signatures on a petition to have you and "Johnny Doehead .069IQ banned. I think that is what my petition was all about, ain't sure! Do you need to know further information, and for what purpose, other than being nosy? Maybe you should learn to think before you open your trap!

2 amazing men lost their lives and so many are grieving. It disturbs me to see such nonsense posted in regards to this story. John and Steve you will be greatly missed by everyone. Sowers, Hinkle, and Mackley families you are in our thoughts and prayers.

Truly a sad event. Condolences to the families and esp. to the survivors as they will need to cope and move on.

Hopefully the report from the police will shed some light on if anything can be done to prevent similar incidents.

You are the one who started the thoughtless, worthless blatherings, as per USUAL! Always more information needed, why! Condolences to all involved. RIP brothers!

My condolences to the family. I would be interested to know if the boat went under or if the floatation in the Bayliner gave them any kind if chance by staying swamped and upright allowing the people to only stay partially submerged in the cold water. When a boat loses power in seas, it will turn stern first, as the stern is heavier than the bow, then the waves will overwash the stern quickly swamping the boat. It sounds like the men thought quickly and put on pfds but like the article said if you are immersed in the cold water, hypothermia sets in quickly.

Totally appropriate, and may even save someone else's life.

The boat sunk to the bottem. Apparantly someone removed the floatation material that boats have built into them. Otherwise it would have just gotten swamped but thats it. Speaking of swamps, "Another Word" met his wife in the swamps, you know....
