People really need to have a sanity check when everything is video taped now. What was the guy in the dingy thinking... LOL. reminded me of those pirate videos where they cruise up and get pummeled.

Of course there is. Most likely big boat hit fisherman with a wake, drunk fisherman loses his cool and lands himself in jail. I don't miss fishing there or the Detroit River during pleasure boat season. I've taken quite a few huge wakes there, and a couple actually over the bow, but no way in hades would I ever do something that stupid in retaliation.

That is not right.

But you know what, I've seen big boats get close to fishing boats just to bother them. Make big wakes, turn and watch the fishing boats

bobbing in the water. Slow down to make the wakes bigger and wave for the other boats to catch him. Sad,

Small boat is in the wrong, don't care what provoked him. Don't care if the big tuna boat rain past him throwing a big wake, cut him off, yelled at him... doesn't matter, you can't use your boat as a deadly weapon battering ram unless your life is in danger. I would have shot the boat on the one where he rammed up the stern. Nowhere to go on that boat, can't get out of the way and there's a guy trying to murder you with his boat... shoot him!
