That's crazy.

Cracks me up the guy is wondering why they sued him.  In my view $300k is a pretty light amount given what happened.

The guy admits he was sitting down while driving the boat and couldn't see over the dash, so not too surprising he can't understand how only being hurt a little is grounds to get sued...  talk about a complete disconnect from reality!
It is better to be consistently incorrect than inconsistently correct...

My level of sarcasm depends on your level of stupidity...

Sarcasm makes smart people laugh and stupid people mad.

Wild video to watch.
The driver is dumbfounded as to why he is being sued. Wait til the other 2 file their suits, its gonna be over $1 million. the most damning evidence in my opinion is the S-I-L stating he was using his phone  :bash:

I often take my 3 little kids fishing with me.  2 5 year olds and a 2 year old.  They always wear life jackets, but I don't know if I could round them all up and get them out of the boat in time if I was in that situation.  The thought of having my kids run over because some idiot isn't watching where they are driving is completely terrifying.

He probably only had 300k liability coverage. Attorneys going for the low hanging fruit...

Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Man, that's scary. Good thing they were paying attention, and a damn good advertisement for Weldcraft!

The old guy sounds like he's half out of it, thinking the incident wasn't a big deal  :yike:.

My first reaction would have been to jump on my throttle and hope I had a good hole shot....

I've never had that close of a call, but some of these a-holes with boats either don't pay a lot of attention to people fishing or just don't give a damn as they have blown by me full speed at less than 30 yards while I am drifting.

That's some incredible footage, a miracle no one was killed or severely injured.

I'm surprised no one is calling for a ban on high powered motors, or a limit on the amount of gas you can carry.
