Very sad indeed. Here's a link to a video of the accident. I'm suprised to see the other boats carry on past regardless but I guess at that speed they're probably better off not trying to stop.

I think that may be Big Thunder? If it is I saw it last time I was out there and it has four engines with four number 6 drives, it's a really big cat with a huge support team and very friendly - nice people.

Very sad news indeed.

Really sad and tragic news.

I had the pleasure to meet Bob and his team some years ago in KW and they were really good genuine people. Took a lot of time to show us around the boat and motor home and toys.

Very sad.....
