    Hope the owners of both motor boats had the required liability insurance because they will need it now or this collision will reappear in the courts.

        Correct, you are not required to have insurance if you own a boat, but unless both parties have deep pockets, they will be wishing they had in this case.

    I know some of you are going to think I’ve lost my marbles here, but that’s kinda the point??I’ve gotta have a little fun with you sometimes! I’ve been loving going through all the new spring styles this week (kind of ironic since the weather is finally warming and I’m inside oozing over handbags online). Soon it’ll be time to get out in that fresh air and strut! So, what to wear?

    Fendi B Bag in beaming blue
    In my Replica Handbag All Stars column I like to look at the bags that made it to the top of the A list and then just never came down. It’s not enough for it to be an “It” bag at one time or another, it has to become a classic,cheap glasses, long after it makes the trends. The replica Fendi B Bag hits this criteria right on the nose. It’s one of my all time favorites, and along with the Spy bag it’s Fendi’s signature style.

    Replica or Not this Fendi bag would still save Lady Ga-Gas style
    It’s kind of hard to ignore Lady Ga-Ga. Even so, I’ve managed for the most part, until this picture of her carrying (an authentic incidentally) of my favourite Fendi replica handbag. That, and the fact that we called my grandmother “Gaga” have endeared me to her enough to finally write about her.

      There is something very wrong with you. A person died and you want to talk about fake handbags. Whoever you are you are a very sick person.

    Do we need a guilty party and destroy another person's life? While the collision regulations at sea are clear, Rule2 for both vessels is: Keep a lookout and avoid a collision at all times. With the lights from Road Town in the background, it is very difficult to spot little navigation lights. With the engine noise of either boat, very difficult to hear the other boat. For the limited visibility, both boats were traveling too fast to avoid collision. No need for new legislation, which does not get enforced. The hard lesson is: We all need to reduce our speed to avoid this to happen again. My Condolences to the family, and quick recovery for the injured.

      Do we need another unfounded opinion to ruin the value of facts? If you saw something take it to the Police not the blogs. There's your hard lesson!

    @Capt...it appears as though you witness these two boats travelling too fast to avoid a collision; well if this is the case, you need to give a written statement to the police. And that's the problem with our society today, everyone sees, but no-one wants to come forth and be a witness but expects miracles to happen when the police can not solve a crime, or come to a conclusion in a matter.
