    People race railroad crossing arms as well. Same thing. Risk life to save a few minutes.

    Usually worse than a BlackJack table, The train (or bridge) will win more often.
    Sad to risk lives for a small (end of?) life event.

    I suspect they were scrapping it and made an oops video. Dude sad "oh shid" before it happened. Plus there was only one stand left.

    This could have ended badly for them... not sure what they were trying.

    I used to run an old and slow 42' single screw SF out of Lauderdale and turning around in front of Pt. Everglades could get pretty thrilling. It required good timing and a well chosen course line. What was the excuse for those boats and what was that last one saving their 900hp for? Man I hate getting it up under the quarter, never mind letting yourself get broadsided.

    The two most uncommon things are common sense and common courtesy. Neither they nor experience can be bought although many think they can. Of course if they could be WM would put their name on it and water it down.

    I was probably on the horizon of that shot. It was one nasty day out there, and eventually that dredge worked its way offshore and just sat nose first riding it out.

    In case anyone wants to raft up. Although I'm not sure what the one at the bow is supposed to do.

    That's a new way to clean the bottom and running gear. The no cost way, LOL.

    I have seen some stupid things on the Chesapeake Bay, in the San Diego Bay, and the Sea of Cortez. However; none of them equal the ridiculous things you have shown here that happen in Miami. I think it is the home of stupid boaters, I was going to argue and say they are everywhere but you have convinced me you have a lot more than anywhere else!!!
