    I remember that thread. I know I posted some strong opinions in it, and this is the reason why.

    How about some info from the dock master? Or an opinion.

    Without more information one could not make a comment on that tragic accident. Anything anyone would say about the accident would be nothing more than a guess without doing some investigating.

    Was it a fault from the shore? I don’t know

    Was it a fault from one of those boats? I don’t know

    Was it transient voltages? I don’t know

    Could it have been prevented? Yes. I would never let my children swim in waters close to where so much electricity is in use.
