I heard that there was a crash, like an alien spaceship crashed into the Ark, and they weren't wearing PFDs... and like... they drowned cuz like they weren't prepared for Earths gravity! Someone should like make a law... or call the Air Force! At least that's what my friend's buddy's dog's previous owner's ex-girlfriend heard at a bar in Salida.
I don't agree with this sentiment at all. This is a thread about an accident, it's not a memorial. While it's always appropriate to be respectful of the deceased, anything is fair game for discussion. If you want something to be a memorial, then put 'Memorial' in the title of the thread. This is a boater's forum, we talk about accidents to learn.I don't think this is the correct place to be having the conversation. The poor guy just died, lets respect that in this thread, if you have to talk about it how about taking it to another thread out of respect?
This is the kind of smart ass response that is really not called for. The guy is right. I just read a couple of threads about accidents on the Ark and non-boaters were ranting about "what should be done"...so your knee-jerk reaction is to post on the internet about it before any details surface? good call bro.
I'd recommend going to places like Denver Post online and read what non-boaters have to say... there were about 5 deaths in a couple of weeks on the Ark, and all the ignoramuses are out there ranting about what should be done... of course, they don't know squat, but they are opining about the issue.So what's the debate about?
