Ah-ha- so this is the gal that got pinned between a boat and the wall at the channel (mentioned earlier in this thread) Really hope she comes out ok, the picture sure looks painful.This past weekend we were in Havasu celebrating Memorial Day and my friend Tara Hurley… Natalie Heyler needs your support for Help Tara with medical expenseswww.gofundme.com
Was she ON the boat, not paying attention with legs hanging over the side?The boat driver apparently went to beach the boat in the channel pinning her against the wall. Ummm, wouldn't you LOOK to see if anyone was in front of you before sliding up on shore?-or- did she walk in front of the now committed boat that was "parking" on the beach thus walking in the path of an oncoming boat?
hmm, solid possible reason for "no insurance" ...an angle i didn't think about. As far as him "accidently" accelerating forward, adding the possible "rental" factor (inexperience/ unfamiliar boat) sounds like a perfect storm for an accident.I heard it was a rental boat that hit her. Maybe that is the reason for no insurance. I sure hope for a speedy recovery.
I find it hard to believe you can rent a boat with no insurancehmm, solid possible reason for "no insurance" ...an angle i didn't think about.

I've never rented a boat or PWC- can you buy a 1 day policy for the duration of the rental? Does a policy come with the rental agreement? When I rent a car, I show proof of insurance and have the option of buying an additional policy. I don't think the average auto insurance policy covers boat accidents does it?I find it hard to believe you can rent a boat with no insurance
Family trips as a kid, I remembered the grownups talking about skiing naked under the bridg. Fast forward to around 2000, we were at LBR celebrating some friends bachelo/bachelorette weekend. A buddy and I were doing shots at Kokomo’s about 11:30 and had the brilliant idea to take my boat for a cruise. We headed out of Thompson towards copper canyon, i got spooked because I couldn’t see shit in that direction so we headed back. Talking about how the old farts told stories of buzzing the bridge, a dare turned into we’re doing this! Bright yellow jet boat rooster high all the way through. We ran all the way around the island scared shitless at this point. Idled back through to LBR, pulled back in our slip and people were telling us we missed the boat that buzzed the bridge. So yeah, done it, but glad we didn’t eat shit anywhere along way and no one got hurt! Grown up and hindsight, pretty stupid, and pretty lucky for the outcome. Definitely not the only time “Crazy Like That” lived up to its name.I have heard about it.. really REALLY BAD IDEA..
I have idled through the channel many times at night at varying times from 10:00 pm to 4:00 am..
I can’t tell you how many times idling through I have seen kids (and I mean young kids) down there swimming and sometimes swimming through or across it..
WTF kids are doing out that late I have no idea, but I’ve seen it on two or three occasions.
Well, fuck if that ain't part of the problem with our legal system. Perhaps "they" need to take some accountability for their actions, and folks need to stop trying to fix stupidity with lawsuits!If it's a rental boat? they need to go after the owner(s) !
Guess I better go back and read! .... Read gal was pin'd by pontoon in channel! ... lol didn't read she was part of the ... THEY! And agree!! -"they" need to take accountability for their actions!Well, fuck if that ain't part of the problem with our legal system.

But hey, just my opinion here...
They used to have ski shows at night under the bridge with the bare footers jumping off pontoons. Back in the 80's and early 90's it wasn't cool to hang in the channel.
I wish they would do that again!
You are right! In today's world, someone had better be insured! I didn't mean to come off as attacking. I just get frustrated with all of the frivolous lawsuits, is all. Wasn't intending to lash out at you. I'm sorry for it coming off that way.Guess I better go back and read! .... Read gal was pin'd by pontoon in channel! ... lol didn't rear she was part of the ...

What I'm saying is, a boat that is rented needs to be insured. If the renter fucks someone up, has an accident with another boat, or used for a crime!
...Who's responsible for letting someone rent/use their Boat??
Welllllll, like my conquest. age of boat plus hp, only 1 company would touch with limited time of use and they wanted 8k a year. At 8000 a year I’ll take my chanceshow the fk do you not have boat insurance,on any boat...dcb or bayliner.
No law requiring health insurance for Arizona residents. Trump did away with that on a federal level and some states like California put the requirement and subsequent fines back in at a state level. Even with the fines more young people go uninsured than those with coverage since the annual fine on your state tax return is considerably less than the premiums. That way if you get hurt you and I pick up the tab anyway.I figure she would have some type of insurance to cover herself. Right?
For the time those were top fucking quality but now oh my God my eyes hurtIf you accidently google : "An Internet classic: Lake Havasu party girls" you might find a not safe for work video that may have some possible footage on old VCR tape of what could be perhaps what you are looking for.
That website will have other scenes as well. Searching for: "Publicsluts - Lake Havasu" is another title that could show up and also not be safe for work.
But yu didn't hear it from me. Note at RDP there are no direct links allowed.
I just went on to her "gofundme" page to donate a few bucks and read the write up there. She does have health insurance, but it states that it won't cover enough. She was taken by ground ambulance to hospital in Havasu, then took a helicopter to Vegas (likely a level 1 trauma center, which is what she needed). That kind of helicopter ride is likely in the neighborhood of $30K, and I doubt that her insurance paid much, if any of that. I don't know her. I have only just read the little bit here, then the aforementioned gofundme page. Sucks. Some things are blatantly obvious to those that have spent much time around boats, but if everyone involved was a newb to boating, whatever happened may not have been as obvious to any of them, as it would be to any of the boaters here... Sounds like she's having a rough go of it!I figure she would have some type of insurance to cover herself. Right?
i have lived here ten + years and I still use maps to go anywhere other than something on the 95.. it’s fucking crazySo we have him to blame for the FUUUUUUCKED up twisty streets, no thoroughfares and no straight shots to anywhere in the city?! City layout drives me nuts!
Yup, Kiowa, Acoma and Avalon always get me confused. On top of that let’s name every street in a 5 mile radius the same name but change it to drive, way, lane, court, street and circle.i have lived here ten + years and I still use maps to go anywhere other than something on the 95.. it’s fucking crazy
