Just to clear this up. I'm friends with the owner of the boat that was involved in the accident.
Aparantly the steering failed, throwing all 3 on-board into the water.
Driver did not have kill cord attached and was not wearing a lifejacket
I normally frown upon people not wearing PFD's but talking to the owner I understand that this is a lesson learned. He basicly says he'll never forget his lifejacket or kill cord again. No one died, thankfully, and a lesson has been learned.
Yes, the boat below is the boat in question. I don't know what condition it's in now. He bought it from the UK only a few weeks ago
