    Hi,

    I think that pic was on the most viewed post on YF to date.

    The answer to your question is probably still being discussed by the lawyers!

    Have to be quick around here Bstraker. :) But I think that the answer to your question has to be whoever the lawyers find with $$$ in their pockets. Welcome to YF.

    Those pilings on the bayliner may appear new. BUT, can tell you the wood deck is a good ten years old and the pilings may be also. That looks like a residental canal and not something someone is going to be running down at cruise. I may be mistaken. But it looks like the pilings on the port side of the boat just gave way. The one near the port bow is not even visible in the photo and should be as high as the others. I have seen a lot of docks on the west coast of FL where the pilings above the water look like they were installed two months ago and the piling is about as thick as a toothpick under the waterline.

    "I have collapsed a couple of old docks in the area."
    "I have had the joy of watching this happen, although to a much larger boat, its quite exciting."

    No typos here, work on boats in there area enough, and rebuild a few old docks and this kind of stuff happens.

    KW1 the wooden boats you were looking at didn't happen to be built in the industrial park off of Viscaya Blvd?

    Watch Your Wake

    Just watched a case on Peoples Court involving a 1974 23' Mako that was rafted to a 41' Sea Ray off to the side of Pt. Jeff harbor on Labor Day weekend last. A 26' boat came by at "8 to 10mph". The Mako rocked into the the SR. $2,238 damage to the Mako (only a black streak from the rub rail on the SR). The 26 wouldn't stop, but the Mako got his #'s. Verdict for the Mako. Regardless of the speed the judge determined that the 26 was not operating in a "safe manner for the circumstances".

    Old! And speaking of old, if you ever want to get old you best change that "flesh heals... fiberglass doesn't" philosophy to "fiberglass is cheaper to replace than body parts".:cool:
