I would suggest to this particular Town Justice that he or she take a boating safety course then he or she would be aware that while a kayak is not a "sailing" vessel, it is restricted it its ability to maneuver. Check out the COLREGS Town Justice.

This is always a questionable issue. Too many kayakers forget their place around a motorized vehicle. I feel for the loss of this family. An an experienced kayaker knows his place and I speak from experience. I do feel a charge should have been made, not sure what that should have been, but something.
