Weren't they using old ships to make artificial reefs to protect the coastline? Keep it from eroding from storm surges?

Ah, cause it looks somewhat similar to some of the unintentional graveyards but then we did sort borrow the idea from those.

Yeah, I don't follow Chinese politics closely but I gather it is one of several scandals being leveraged to make things messy for various party members these days. It all sounds like normal in house political back-stabbing stuff to me, as factions vie for power within the party.

Going way too fast and hit a small wake, loosing control. It's a basic combination of a grossly overpowered boat and a operator who doesn't know what he's doing and operating in an incredibly reckless manner.

If I'm going that fast, I'm wearing a crash helmet, a pfd or floater suit that won't be torn off by a high speed crash, i'll be sitting down and holding on. I'll also be throttling way back whenever things get choppy or if there's wake.

I am sometimes shocked that there aren't more people killed on the water--that scenario from my experience is just so common.
It's either that or someone overloading a boat.

In NYS there are no licensing requirements. This summer some idiot had 27 people on a 34 foot boat so they could watch fireworks.
Of course all the bays and harbors on Long Island are jam-packed with other boats. The combination of the guy hitting a wake and the fact that the boat was seriously over crowded made the boat capsize--and killed three children.

The thing that bugs me is officials keep saying they "don't know why it happened", while every experienced boater says the boat should have only had 12 people tops.


You don't see as many douchebags operating sailboats. They at least need to have some training.

Also it takes a certain amount of skill to sail. Whereas power boats ... well, skill is required but it's a steering wheel and a throttle.

Is drinking while boating allowed where you live? (anybody)

It's against the law here. You can get a DUI for having a beer while piloting a watercraft.
and there is a Game Warden/Ranger/Conservation Officer type guy on every lake.

Drinking is definitely not allowed here. In order to operate a vessel with a motor you are required to have a Pleasure Craft Operator Card. The test to get it is practically useless, but it's better than nothing. I think there should be further levels of training necessary for pleasure craft over a certain horsepower and for PWCs, who's operators are notoriously stupid.
