We need to ban boats on Clear Lake.

Pigs and Sierra Club agree, no more trips to the ER and worst.

Save the Clear Lake Bass, ban fishing and boats.

Will Jon Hopkins be filing charges against the rock wall or the boat?

I think the dock was high! The article said it was suspended on cables above the pilings, very odd behavior for a dock. I think the rock wall was 'stoned' as well!

With Ostini doing the investigation you never Know who will be at fault . At least he now knows boats belong in the water .

I am pretty sure it will be found to be the owner of the dock's fault, what sort of crazy person would put somthing out off the shore and obstruct the view of a rock wall laying in wait for an unsuspecting boater! Should be laws against such things when you can walk on the algae to get to your boat!

What kind of idiot is running a boat at speed so close to shore as to hit any kind of dock ?

probably one of weber's sailing buddies. stay off of clear lake if you dont know how to sail. go to s.f bay and collide with tanker instead

OMG!!
Word has it that "rock wall" was seen having cocktails at "Alfredo's". If Mr Wall needs any legal advice he might want to contact Morgan Jack for a consultation regarding his defense issues.

Do people really think these jokes are funny? They are super cheesy, at best. Wow...is this a sample of the local humor?

Surprised newcomer - had you been here over the last 4 years - you'd know this is really good humor directed at really bad local leadership. On the upside - the road you took to move here also has an adjacent lane that leads out. Lake County is truly a most singular place to live.

Yes, it is par for the course. Regardless of this being a marine episode, there are immediate reactions and conjecture to any accident, land /sea / air, and to the mental state of the subjects and / or the political situation of the last 1000 years. It's our online version of Mystery Science Theater with some awful writers, grammar and spelling (mea culpa quoque), but you can still put your feet up and throw popcorn at the screen.

The comments are particularly pathetic when real tragedy strikes - something this article seems to indicate.

My own usual feeling is: there, but for the grace ... at least until we get some real facts and can maybe learn, or realize they truly were at fault.
