There is no excuse for this kind of rude behavior. If you find out who this clown is, send him a bill for the damages. :angry5:

Why keep it in a PM Whitebear?

If it happened as GI alleged, (and he doesnt seem the type to be taken to slander) then its a public event that can be discussed. Provided no one sladers the other at a personal level, this is exactly what should be discussed openly. Airboater Ethos, or the apparent "lack there of..." If the other driver looked back and knew what he did, then there's no excuse! If the other didnt realize or had a momentary brain fart like weve all had from time to time, then perhaps he will own up and make apologies.

That's was me that did it, I have about 10 hours under my belt, it was pure accident and I apologize to who ever was driving or riding the boat. I did look back but did not realize I did any damage to anything. I bought this boat mainly for me and my son and I know there was a kid on that boat so again I do apologize. I saw many people that were sitting on the pavillion behind me when I was getting ready to leave and I tried to warn them before I took off....... Again my apologies

THAT'S WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT.
WE HAVE ALL MADE STUPID MISTAKES AT ONE TIME OR ANOTHER.
I LEARNED WHEN I WAS A KID.
SOMEBODY TOLD ME IF I BLAST SO MUCH AS ONE MORE PAPER PLATE, MY TAIL WAS FIXING TO GET TORE-UP BIGTIME.
LEARNED QUICKLY, AND MADE SURE I TOOK IT REAL EASY AFTER THAT!
I WAS EMBARRASSED TOO. WISHING I WOULDA REALIZED IT MYSELF, BUT THAT'S PART OF LEARNING.

Hell both of you two are standup guys in my opinion for one man to make a mistake an man up an say he's sorry and then the other to forget about the whole deal an maybe even make a new friend out of the whole deal .
