Someone in a FB boating group said it was due to a cell phone, but they also said the guy in the fishing boat sued. And rightly so.

Found it. Could be sitting down or using the cell phone. Maybe both?

http://www.oregonlive.com/pacific-no...man_jumps.html


A salmon fisherman who abandoned ship by leaping into the frigid waters of the Columbia River last summer -- an instant before another motorboat crashed into his -- has filed a $372,500 lawsuit against the other driver.

Clatsop County sheriff’s deputies accused boat driver Marlin Lee Larsen of several crimes after the 75-year-old told investigators he couldn’t see where he was driving because he was sitting down and the dash of his boat was blocking his view. Larsen said he probably should have been standing, according to the sheriff’s report, which notes Larsen uses a motorized scooter to get around on land.

Larsen’s son-in-law, who also was on the boat, told investigators that he had warned his father-in-law to pay attention, that he sometimes sees his father-in-law using his cell phone while driving the boat and that his father-in-law had been off-and-on his cell phone the morning of the crash, according to the sheriff’s report.

Although Oregon law heavily restricts cell phone use while driving, there are no such specific laws governing boating. But it is against the law to operate a boat without due care.

The lawsuit, filed earlier this month, claims Larsen was boating while distracted by his cell phone on the morning of the Aug. 12, 2017, when the crash occurred near the mouth of the Columbia at the Pacific Ocean, just east of Fort Stevens State Park.

Thanks Jim!!!!!! I've been on that type boat and if sitting it's near impossible to see over the nose. But from a distance you can see if paying attention.

He probably could have used a few more fenders (aka bumpers).

I don't trust anyone who leaves the bimini deployed while on the road. They either have no brains or too much money to care.

In the future I'll be checking for straps, especially on the ones w/biminis up !!

yup, I don't like summer with all the idiots towing loads without tie down chains or heavy straps. I see a lot of budget 500# straps holding down multi-thousand pound loads, lots of people who don't have hitch safety chains attached, others who attach them wrong. I'm no expert but I do my best not to be an idiot!


Honestly I wonder if insurance paid up for this case of what is obviously self-inflicted gross negligence! I certainly wouldn't hold it against the insurance company if they pulled out the fine print that said they don't pay claims for dumbasses like this guy!

I agree with you pixie, no one with any smarts would tow with a bimini top open. Duh.

I cannot imagine how fast this idiot had to be going before slamming on the brakes hard enough to break the tie down straps and send a 5000 pound load flying that far forward. Even with no tie down straps that feat would be hard to accomplish.
