for safety awareness...  some good practices and some areas for improvement.  this seems like the right forum section for this.  Let's increase our awareness of safety practices!   

3 kayakers fishing together, you see different views of the actual event.

for the boat collisions, i added the approximate time to watch in each video:
about 6:50


about 9:00


about3:40

As a contact manager, I am really interested in this. I do not; however, have the time or inclination to watch an hour of other people fishing. Can you tell me what actual periods in the videos I should be watching?
Thanks

In that particular area, a yaker might wanna red flag way up high, then again, those "boaters" didn't seem to be paying attention anyway. Hobie parts are expensive. Hopefully it was only the shear-pin that broke. The guy yellin at 'em reminds me of myself.

Great video jon_elc, thanks.

besides the boater not paying any attention and running over the guy, they then just take off like nothing happened, never checked up to see if he was okay or offered any form of assistance.  So we got both Stupid and criminal behavior.

The guy driving the outboard was looking ahead, not behind.  So were the two passengers who did not seem to flinch.  At the end he may have adjusted coarse and turned toward instead of away from the kayak.  You have to wonder if there was some malice or intent.  Like road rage because of the crowded conditions..

So,
An unpowered vessel isn't technically under the ColRegs, but as far as the laws of the sea, the powerboat was on the Port tack and was the give way vessel. The powerboat was also practicing poor seamanship by not maintaining a close lookout.

I am personally one who does not condone excessive liscencing; because of that I accept the fact that stupid stuff like this will happen.

I'm glad no one was hurt.

i'm with you guys.  But being right means little to me if I am dead or maimed.  Not that I'm in physical shape to be out there kayaking, but if I did, what are better ways to be seen / heard, in a a similar situation? 

Neon colors? Flag? Whistle (like PWC operators?)  Airhorn?

I like sound, airhorns are often loud enough to be heard over an outboard. The other thing that can work, in extreme cases like this, are pencil flares. Something about a rocket going up in front of you makes you think turning is a good idea!

Thatís freakin scary. Pure adrenaline!!!  Man, Adam was calm. I would have asked the guy for his license and made a report with the Coast Guard as all collision on the water is required for both captains to write a report of the incident.  I didnít see any registration numbers on the boat either.  I would still report it to the coast guard and local harbor master.

Iím glad Adam is safe. That was crazy.

If you pause the video there is a frame that clearly shows registration number.

Shouldn't be too difficult for LE to find.
