    I had plenty of time to rub one out in space which was great but after awhile it was like living in a snowglobe - Peter Griffin

            could have suffered a heart attack for all we know

            more of the story here
            A MAN is in hospital after his boat smashed into a jetty at JoJo's cafe in Nedlands this morning.
            The 7.2m vessel collided with the jetty about 1.30am, causing extensive damage to the vessel and to the jetty.

            The skipper of the boat was taken to Royal Perth Hospital for treatment for chest injuries and a knock to the head.

            Insp Steve Bradley said police divers were called in to make sure there were no other passengers on the vessel.

            "The vessel has taken on water and is in danger of sinking," he said.

            "It is not known at this time how or why the collision occured, and police and marine officers will investigate the matter."

              chest injuries are common in boating accidents like this though… think about how you're generally sitting/ standing at the helm.

              either way its a pretty decent effort. might pop down and have a squiz if its still there

                Stop being so sensible, this is the time and place for wild speculation.

                It must have been returning after an offshore rendezvous with a ship carrying drugs, it's the only possibly explanation for a boat to be travelling at high speed at 1am.

                Either that or the standard of boat people has really improved

                      Clearly we need speed cameras on the water, it's the only way to save lives!

                          I have seen water police in East Fremantle with a speed trap setup before. The issue is with drink driving and accidents is the penalties arent harsh in this state.

                            Having met the water Police and spent quite a bit of time with them, don't get them confused with the TEG, they are nothing of the sort. Majority of the time if you are pulled up for speeding you are just given a warning, unless they have been directed to crack down and run an operation, or your a tool.

                              people doing 20 knots plus on the river after dark scare me a LOT, as they are usually also the ones who can't read navigational markers/lights, vessel nav lights (or are aware that their boat needs them) and drive whilst drunk.

                              That is a pretty difficult place to accidently hit, considering it is lit up like a christmas tree. Will be interesting to see the cause.
