George Bush must have made him insult his SUV. This is what happens. Sad, very sad.

Did the publication change the original headline, or did you?

Boat Kills Owner


Was the boat mad at the owner? Did the owner cheat on the boat? Have the police arrested the boat, or do they think it is a case of boat self defense?

Guns, SUVs, not boats are killing people. Looks like the left will have one more thing to ban.

The threshold for "Breaking News" seems a bit low these days. I guess this is going to be a very slow news day.

"Their boat went into a hard turn, threw them out and ran over them.'

Are we sure this wasn't an SUV in disguise?

It sounds to me as if the helmsman got careless and lost control. Most likely he had the engine revved up, let go of the tiller, and it swung quickly all the way over to one side, because the steering was set too loose.

Was it his boat, or a rented boat? Yet another lousy reporter.

bass fishing boat, eh? probably an electric trolling motor was in use, therefore I’m going to classify this as a green death. Be afraid of your Prius, be very afraid.

Were they drunk? Most boat accidents involve alcohol.

Maybe it was Champy, the lake monster up there. In all seriousness, what a shame, went fishing and never came back, ask not for whom the bell tolls ...

Most boat accidents involve alcohol.

In my experience, most boating involves alcohol.

That headline is so anthropomorphic, I am stunned that an SUV was not involved...

It’s called a “Kill Switch” for more than one reason.

Reads like the steering cable broke and without a kill switch tether, it circled back on them.

I once went to a boat canvas place with a boss many years ago. He need new canvas on his boat. The owner of the canvas place said Al Key Hol was a his best customer. He said boats and booze are a bad combination. The worst boat accidents where people get killed almost always involve booze.

As a little girl, I was riding in a boat-pulling a skier that my brother was kneeling on the seat driving and that steering cable broke. My brother got thrown out in a perfect dive and the boat started circling. Skier dropped off and I (being little and not knowing any better) tried to stop the boat by pushing the wrong way on the gas lever-cirling faster then. But finally thought to turn off the key. Luckily my brother surfaced unhurt. Sorry this accident turned out differently.
