execpt it wasn't 150 mph it was 20knots and things happen a whole lot more differently, as I'm sure Richard Hammond would agree when you go seriously quick, so you can't compare road speeds to 20 odd mph in a boat. besides a rib would bounce a fair bit before it came to a complete stop, lessening the imapct a bit, i'm sure.
My comparrison with the roads is that they're nicking everyone just to make money - not that i'd ever support going through somewhere as beautiful as christchurch that quick - its far to pretty and you'd miss it!
