Agreed!! accidents are preventable and most of the time it's people not the machines at fault.
When we are out on rib rally's and at speed behind other boats and someone has just stopped dead in front of you for what ever reason and you have almost ran up there ar*e it's common but never the less highly dangerous, like biffer said in another post it's about being aware of your surroundings and reading the sea but accidents do happen and it's not always the injured party's fault but someone elses.
