    That is just terrible news. I actually used to get really nervous returing through SD Bay on a busy weekend afternoon with a billion boats buzzing around WOT and all those guys floating around on kayaks. Seemed to me like just a matter of time...

    Yep. That’s why I roll mb. At least there’s a speed limit. Sad

    Being run over by a boat has become a concern of mine. I hope there is a way to get out there and decrease the risk.

    MDR is really bad about policing speeders and reckless boaters. The entrance channel is way too narrow for the size of the marina and no one has a clue how to navigate it. I'm honestly surprised it doesn't happen more frequently, I've seen way too many powerboats cut off sails in the middle channel and force an emergency tack.

    Wow, with all of the tough courses that you have to take, and the stringent on-the-water test to get your license to operate a powerful boat, it is amazing that this happened.

    Oh, wait . . . I forgot, ANYONE can call themselves a Captain.

    My house overlooks the main channel, so I have observed quite a bit of policing activities. IMO, the sheriffs are really good about stopping the flagrant violators without stopping every boat for no reason at all. Curious to know how you came to the conclusion that enforcement is lacking, unless you want police everywhere all the time to interrogate innocent activity that is "suspicious" for no articulate reason.

    I see sailboat under sail in the power boat channel often, the MDR Sheriff station does a great job of policing that place.
    Accidents happen.

    I live in the apartments on the north side, they're there, and I've seen them make stops and board vessels, but it does little to solve anything. I never said law enforcement presence needed to be increased, the lifeguards are just as responsible for maintaining a safe waterway. There isn't some patrol element standing by there all day, they only make stops when they come or go and it so happens then.

    I'll take a jig stick or popper rod down to the rocks and make some casts to practice and relax, not one time goes by I don't see someone throwing wake at 15-20kts or other dangerous behavior. That's not "suspicious" behavior, that's idiotic and well deserving of a stop.

    Not just anyone can be a Captain! You have to either buy the correct hat or have the little "CAPTAIN" plaque over the door to your stateroom. :D
