Having read that, my only concern would be if they saw that unfold from a Km away, why didn't they bouy the anchor off and run for it?

All the same the court result was right, just very sad 3 people had to die needlessly. But I am also sure there is a message there for small boaters maybe?

I'm inclined to agree Steve. I have no idea how experienced or not the victims were at small boating, but ultimately they (we) must also take responsibility for their (our) own safety too.

Yup, that's my take on it, being in the right is no consolation if it results in being dead
