    Yeah, like so many that get new larger boats and have no clue of what they are doing!!!

    Nice boat, Sheriff...and while the County can't afford enough deputies to patrol, or even to answer and respond to calls on land, we get fancy machines.:s0067::s0100::s0159:

    Why don't they get a 50K boat and spend the other 100K on proper crew training.

    Hard to make out from the video what's going on. From the looks of things, the fisheries boat approached the fisherman from up wind/current and was carried over the fishing boat's anchor line.:eek:
    Pretty inept boat handling by fisheries and they would be labial for any damages or losses that encored.:rolleyes:
