Up here, he certainly would have been arrested: that sort of inexcusable behavior is PRECISLY what the airboat haters will use against us.

The guy in the airboat was approaching the kayaker and thought it would be funny to buzz by him and whip the boat and blow him over. It so happened that he was going too fast and when tried to turn didn't have enough thrust to turn, ended up running him over. Then when he turned around to try and help the kayaker, ended up running him over again. WTF IS WRONG PEOPLE? Luckily the kayaker just eneded up with bumps and bruises, no serious injuries. I think the guy with the airboat oughta have his azz stomped firmly into the ground and his boat torn apart into unrecognizable pieces!!!!!! And we sometimes wonder why government tries to put restrictions on our fun, because of jackazzes like this.
First off this happened in Lake Placid not lake O.... Second they ain't nobody gonna be whooping no ones ass... It was a accident. the guy driving the airboat is a very good friend of mine witch wasn't hauling ass or driving crazy. He's has been boating for many years and is a very safe driver. Third The passenger on the airboat was videoing the ride and has all of it on video and I've seen it with my own 2 eyes and it's nothing like what's being described.... There was 2 different kayaks he didn't hit the same one twice. You should watch the video before pointing fingers cause this could have happened to any of us. There was no way that the driver could have missed him. He was running probably 20-25 mph I don't think that's hauling ass by any means. Thank god it didn't turn out worse than it did.
The other side of the story :rebel: Thanks Farmboy

lay a hand (much less hurt someone with violence) on a fellow human and its jail time.
wake-up its 2014.
I guess you learn this when you get older.
that kayak has as much right on that water way as air-boater's.
you just jealous because we have got to use flags and they don't?
AND WE ARE ONLY HEARING ONE SIDE SO-FAR.
my experience with kayakers in juniper run is if I see a kayak I pull over and shut down.
I have been thanked more than once.
an air-boater, who is on this form, I have seen him swamp kayaks before. and laugh his ass off when they turn over..
just think if they had a 2 year old on that thing and got swamped and the kid drowns. it would be real funny then right?
That's the problem. You get in trouble for kicking someone's ass when they need it. Sometimes a good ass-whipping is a lesson learned.

Kayaks are a great concern in my line of work but not the most dangerous. I can normally get away from a kayak but then again I rarely go over 20 mph and only do so in open water.

All I can say about this is that there are: OLD AIRBOATERS AND BOLD AIRBOATERS BUT NO OLD BOLD AIRBOATERS. And the same goes for Kyackers. :stirpot:

Any boat running near any tall grass should have a flag. Hate to read a situation like this cause I know where it can endup. If you cant see dont plane up or you are 100% at fault. Kayaker ccommunities are very strong and out number us so we do have to be extra careful or our future is gone. This airboater who was at fault should keep this from what it can turn into by getting that kayaker healed up and on an airboat. Keep the peace.
