I’m sitting at Windsor now.. lots of cops everywhere. Windsor north boat ramp closed.
i am hearing conflicting stories of what kind of boat it was. Please let me know if you find out. I keep hearing it was a certain type of large boat. If it indeed was a large Silver CC (mti) I’d like to know ASAP.

I was outside watering my trees and plants and heard a big crash! Then heard a siren. But it wasnt near the roadway...it was out In the river. I live in Crystal Beach. The explosion....which was just the 2 boats hitting each other...wasnt a real explosion...just sounded like one....was LOUD I'm afraid this is going to be bad

Was too dark to really tell what was going on as I was getting off the water, and was a bit of a shit show at Windsor south ramp. And holy hell the bugs.

One guy hit the dock and the truck driver fell in the water. Everyone was ok.. but 🙄. Boats were everywhere.

Wife thought some other boat with red and green graphics was pulling towards our trailer... it was just me with green bugs on the boat.

Same boats that wrecked or a different issue? Sounds like a tough evening on the lake. Hoping for better news.

The dock was a different issue.. wife was getting ready to hop off the boat and heard a crunch and splash about 30 feet away. Guy in an Advantage thought it was D Day and stormed the docks. Luckily the guy that fell off his boat was ok.

That got my kids attention and my main concern was navigating through the newbies and inebriated operators at no wake speeds.

My prayers go out to the other boat involved. Yes it was my friends in the cc, and I was supposed to be in the boat with them but decided to stay in California because of the heat.

everyone in the cc is not physically harmed.. (mentally I’m sure will be a different story)

before any rumors start there is always a DD on that boat and he is a very responsible person. (Same driver everytime, also drive the other boats etc)

From the distant photo, it kinda looks like someone went over the back of the CC, but what Dave said makes it sound a little different.

It was truly an absolute shit show today.

Chopper left but several PD boats still on scene and it’s almost midnight, someone must be unaccounted for, looks like they have river blocked off at the mouth with a line of Pd boats.

Wow, saw the FB post last night as I was falling asleep. I was hoping it wasn't as bad as originally reported. My thoughts are with all of those involved.
