Alone but didn't feel like stopping to take a leak over the stern..


.Those boys are lucky! Another couple feet over and they would have had a lot of trouble getting out of the way.

It was an older guy driving the boat distracted by his cell. It was reported that the guy uses one of those carts for assistance/ transportation.

Where do you see him grab his phone? Looks like they all just jump out as quick as they could.
Nobody was filming with their phones. It looks like two GoPro's from different angles on the boat. That guy in the back waving at the boat made sure he held on to his favorite fishing rod though. Its scary how fast the situation turned bad.

Good example why you need to wear your life vest. Too late after you exit stage left.

Oh I know they were using GoPro's. I was just asking the guy above who said one guy had to grab his phone before jumping. I didn't see in the video where he did that so was wondering if I had missed that part. I thought the guy closer to the camera's had grabbed some part of the boat for balance before leaping.

And yeah, that happened really really quick. Those people are lucky to be alive, and was a very good thing they were paying attention to their surroundings to be able to jump off in time.

This past salmon season in Monterey we were hooked up and then noticed a squid boat headed our direction. The closer he got the more obvious it became that he was headed directly for us and not changing course, just kept getting closer and closer. We finally yelled at him on channel 16 to get him to change course. But the whole time we're fighting this fish we were asking if this guy was going to turn away. That boat HAD to of seen us, but for whatever reason didn't want to alter course to avoid us.

The owner of the Bayliner is said to be 75. He said he couldn't see over the console and was using his cell phone at the time of the accident. Great combination!

This almost happened to me on the Long Beach breakwall. Luckily the other boat wasn't going that fast! so we were able to pull the anchor and get out the way just in time!

Anyone saw this boat crash posted online? Crazy drivers not paying attention. They were probably texting, drinking, smoking weed or all at the same time.

Wow. So weed will make you do that? You seem really informed.
Pretty sure dude was tested after the accident.
