    Hal, i understand your anger. Really! I would be pissed too. But this thread turned racial the moment you decided it was necessary to comment on the race of the other driver. that small comment turned this thread into what it has become. i'm not offended by what you wrote but i thought it was necessary to defend those that might be offended.

    This thread is not about race!

    This thread is not about racial issues. It is about My anger and frustration of spending such a long time on a project to have it destroyed, before even getting to enjoy the fruits of My labor. I did not even get enough time to build any good memories behind the use of the boat other than enjoying building it.
    I have close friends that are Hispanic, black,White, White trash, Aisian, and many other races.
    I do not come to this board to discuss political , racial or any other issues. I come here for my common enthusiasim of all things related to performance boating and to meet great people.
    It is really fucked up what happened, and I was just trying to share with all who have followed my build.
    I want to thank all the people , which is pretty much every one on this board,who have expressed their sentiments and support, and to Mike( Rex Marine), Gt jets, Tom(jetboat performance), for all the offers to help, and To Jim Rich for the phone call ,offering to give me back my old boat.Also thanks to 72Hondo for proposing a write up. King Creole(Chris Davidson, Publisher PB mag) did send Me a message about shooting the boat. I guess He has not heard that there is nothing to shoot.
    However I will not post or discuss nor reply to any more comments on racial issues. Every one is entitled to their own opinions but that is not what I wanted this to be about.
    Now having got all that out of the way, I will just set the Kona aside for now, untill I decide to repair or not or what to do with it. I have some ideas, but it will later on down the road.
    For now ,I am on the hunt For a boat that is in very good condition that I could just throw all My junk in and go, with little work.
    Inparticular, I Would really Love to do a Rogers 19 Bonniville TR, or a Rogers 18 Bonniville. So if every one would keep their eyes oppen I, would appreciate it.
    I am in no hurry just yet and I really do not want another full blown project , because I allready have one of those in the form of a Daytona.
    So thanks again for all the support, You Guys and Girls are the best group of people I have ever been associated with.......Hal

    You have every right to be angry................some of us understand.

    Hope this all works out for you.

    I have a similiar story to share. Many years ago, my dad made a traffic stop in I-8, west of the Arizona stateline. The driver showed his handgun, instead of his drivers license and sped off. The driver was a parolee at large and his son was also on parole. After a pursuit, the driver exited the highway and crashed into a van, killing a child and grandmother in the vehicle. The driver was white and the victims were indian. Now what was the need to mention any race or personal background? The mental execution was made before the story was over huh?

    People in general will often make unwise choices, resulting in severe repercussions. You put a lot of time and money into your boat. I would often go through the many pages of your thread. It was a real nice boat. My intention was not to add salt on your wound, but to see what was up with the racial comments in this thread.

    Wow, great comment. So this makes me the only Mexican in Arizona? I'll be the first to say SB1070 was a good law, but executed and promoted horribly.

    I did not try to bring him down further. I would be angry if I built a nice boat and had it damaged due to anybody. Racial comments or insults are simply not needed when being an angry at another person. I've been called much worse from Kindergardners in the area I work at, but it's just the internet, right? I don't get offended in any way; I just to highlight a comment previously mentioned.
    I'll throw out the BS card if you really expect me to believe you weren't offended. In fact I'll go as far as to say not only were you offended, you intended to offend others with your equally uncalled for comments.

    The OP made a statement out of frustration and possibly still being in a state of shell shock after a horrific situation. A statement that many chose to overlook given the circumstances. Now you portray yourself to be some type of LEO, and with a clear mind you throw this crap out? I'd love to be an Attny where you work and pull out this reverse racism post and throw it in your face when you stop a white guy. You do realize that you are supposed to be a professional and that everything you say can and will be used against you? Or are you just an internet poser with a poor me attitude?

    It is unfortunate when anyone is victimized by someone breaking the law. It is unfortunate that the OP is going to be out money because of the actions of someone beyond his control (which explains his original lack of sensitivity even though it doesn't make it politically correct). I would use the drunks insurance to pay for the boat and then let you insurance pay for your vehicle. Both the tow vehicle and the towed should be covered at the same time. You should definately file the civil suit and then let the drunk driver pay his $50 a month or whatever they set and make him pay until it's all paid for. I will serve as a reminder as to why he shouldn't drink and drive.

    The $10,000 minimm does not even cover the loss of My tahoe let alone any damages to the boat, which means My insurance has to cover the truck and subrigate the adverse insurance company. Which means I am out of pocket My deductible, the loss of the boat and the towing and storage expenses involved with the boat, the ride home, Not to mention the fact that I now have to go out and find another vehichle and come out of pocket for down payment. Now all that is left is the 15/30 medical which We were not seriously injured and the most that we could stand to recoup would be the max of their bodily injury policy, which if an attorney is involved he wil be taking 33% of that.
    Now all I have left is to retain an attorney and go after him civily for what is left. Now if it were a white, black or brown person that ran over My wife and I,while they were drunk, and I had to sue them civily to get restitution, Then I could atleast count on them still being in the United states to pursue My suit against them, instead of them high tailing it back accross the border to escape prosecution.
    The point here is not about race.
    It is about a person choosing to get intoxicated and then getting behind the wheel and using a vehichle as a weapon and going out and aimlessly shooting his weapon into a crowd of people ,and there not being any stiffer penalties applied, than if it were a stone cold sober driver that ran us over.I like to drink and party like any one , but one thing I will not do is get behind the wheel if i have been drinking.
    The guy was insured. He did not have a drivers licence , how does that happen, but he was insured with the bare bones minimum that the state requires. Now, My uninsured/ under insured coverage is not going to do any thing about that,now is it, especially since those coverages do not cover property damage to begin with. Insurance laws should require maximums ,not minimums, so that the victims of these kind of situations are not left holding the bag and picking up the pieces.
    Now I am greatfull that My wife and I are alive and did not have any log term serious injuries, But I want my life back to where it was 1 minute before I was ran over by that drunk driver. So Please forgive me for being angry, I poured My heart and soul into building that boat, And I will never get that back!
    So mister Yumajet, why dont You go out and arrest some more drunk drivers and make our streets and highways safe.
    I wish all police officers could arrest all persons who drive drunk. I wish all persons who drive a motor vehicle are insured to the fullest and possess a valid drivers license. You made it about race when you pointed out their nationality and a few of the herd posted their comments.

    there are plenty of white, black and brown people that have insurance and there are some that dont. thats why i pay the extra few bucks to guarantee my vehicles coverage incase i get hit by an uninsured motorist, regardless of race.

    a crazy white lady owned a pitbull and it bit me. does that mean white people are careless dog owners?
