Choppin’ the Top

In this case, it was found that the bridge operator was at fault. If you watch the video closely, you see that the bridge starts to lower before the vessel has fully cleared. You can read the Marine Investigation Report for more details about this accident.

It seems like someone should have seen this coming — another reason why it is so important to take a boater education course and know the nautical rules of the road before heading out.

Too much speed, too much wake, not enough common sense = whiplash!

(Kudos to the announcer for calling 'em like he sees 'em.)

Water Sky Machine

In retrospect, when you put a jet engine into a lightweight boat, you should probably expect it to fly.

The Wave Hopper
