Very sad and very stupid. Glad the boat operater didn’t kill anyone. I’ve ran in the hours or darkness before sunrise and can see better without any light, but never with an ounce of alcohol in me (duck hunting). Need every bit of focus I have and my friends equally able to keep an eye out.

    Yeah, we run in the dark all the time but it’s with lights, radar and always two people watching out the front, gotta go as slow as you can see.

    I have thought about being on the water for the fourth but like you said, add some people drinking and driving a boat in dark....pass

    Sometimes you're top boat...sometimes you're not.

    Terrible. All the bad choices and still probably would have made it wearing a lifejacket. Friends of friends on that boat. People grow up on the water and can forget how dangerous it can be after 1000 trips and get complacent.

    I looked at that area on the map, there are boats anchored in all over that bay.

    Tragic

    Here! Here!
    Unfortunate but a good reminder about complacency Casey. Most of start out cautious and then a few of us stray. This is a tragedy that could of been avoided. My thoughts are with the family.
