        Sad story. The article didn’t say (or I missed it) where his boat was found. Was he in the ICW or ocean? Also curious how the weather was. Looked like the boat collided with something. He was probably thrown into the water. Hopefully he is found alive.

          He was testing a 120+ mph boat (@7:00 at night in the dark?) for a customer who was fortunately still waiting back at the marina, so it seems like the weather must have been decent enough. He is a very experienced rigger/builder/driver of the go fast stuff. Very sad for all involved.

              Testing a high speed boat at night is a no no, period, then you do so near a bridge? What a shame.

              So young. His poor family must be torn up.
              There, but by the Grace of God, go I.
