Sounds like a real mystery to me... the only thing missing is "alcohol may have been a factor..."The 40-foot speedboat plowed onto marshland on a moonlit Sunday night off the island's southern shore, just south of the hamlet of Wantagh, authorities said.
The boat was about 150 feet from the water, Frohnhoefer said.
Frohnhoefer said he has seen four similar accidents, usually occurring when boats run up on sandbars while trying to navigate the complex network of channels and bays.
"It's a lack of knowledge, a lack of boating knowledge," he said.
Frohnhoefer said it was too early to speculate on a cause of the crash.
Now that's just fuqin' disgusting... Like those injury sharks need help sniffing out the blood in the water... sorry for the bad pun...and this.....
