Accident

Recommended Posts

The accident happened on Saturday just outside of Discovery Bay, CA on Indian Slough a very very busy waterway on weekends and holidays. I do not know any more details than what is in the article.

I wonder who was driving? The report I saw on the news says that the jetski turned right in front of the boat.

Indian Slough is the main channel in front of Discovery Bay and the only way to get from Orwood to any rideable water. VERY busy piece of water. It is also part of the area that was hotly contested earlier in the year making it a no ski zone.

Sad.

Says they didn't find her body right away. Was she not wearing a PFD?

Stories like this one make me nervous as hell to have anything to drink.... going to jail for someone elses lack of brains is not on the top on my list.

Agreed, why is that 50% of boaters are unexperienced and our operating some of the nicest boats?

I believe they found her a few hours after the accident.....60 feet onshore.

Since I've owned a boat ('99) I think I've had a grand total of 4 beers in all the time I've spent on the water. Personal responsibility for my passengers and public liability come to mind.....
