Always wear your life jackets as owner says.

Unbelievable. As with so many things in life, it's the other idiot you have to beware of.

"Larsen (driver of the boat) also said a lawsuit seemed unnecessary because the people in the Weldcraft weren’t hurt badly."
So that'll be alright then

Hmmm

The video encourages boaters to wear life jackets. Maess and McMahon weren't wearing life jackets. Durham was, but it didn't inflate.

Was it an auto inflate? They all survived......


75 can’t see, going flat out, on the blower doesn’t see what the issue is........

Probably doesn’t need insurance neither......
