Why do people risk their lives

Another prize fool launches against advice with an over loaded boat.

A GROUP of children as young as three are lucky to be alive after their speedboat started sinking in choppy seas off Herne Bay.

It's a shame that when people are that damn stupid that they can't just leave the boat to sink once everyone is off.

More Fools

Came back into harbour yesterday afternoon to hear the rib in front shouting for people in the water.

Saw two lads swimming across the harbour entrance next to the sign that said, wait for it, "NO SWIMMING DANGER".

So told them to bugger off, only to see them going no where with the outgoing tide and strong wind

Ended up hauling them out and dumping them on the beach.

Still gave me an excuse to have one last blast before recovering the ribs.

Don't know about where you are; Where I boat, if a vessel sinks, the National Sanctuary gives you (I believe) a week to raise it, or levies an on-going fine. Owner is resposible for any kind of fuel or oil spill mitigation (or cost thereof, if the Coast Guard ends up doing it.) Not sure what happens if the wreck is deemed too deep or too broken up to raise.

Wasn't there a RING 21 (or suchlike) sunk for a year before being restored? On the dark side I think it was?
