peterwrightjr (6/12/2008)I know Billy Waitsmen very good, he is a heck of a guy and a heck of a fishermen. I haven't talked with him regarding this incident but there would not have been any confrontation unless it was necessary. In my opinion instead of writing speculatory posts, I'd walk down to the fishing fleet marina, straight up to him and asked what happened. The guy has a great reputation here in Destin and always has. He is a long time charter boat captain that has worked his ass off his whole life to try and make a living. Right now are tough times for those guys so bashing him on a public site based on your opinions, and wishing he would go out of business is pretty upsetting, you've got to be kidding me right?






still waiting there petey boy

I was on the Emerald Coast with 18 other people. I had taken my 13-year old son on the fishing trip as a birthday present. I looked up to the right just in time to see the Hired Gun barreling down onto the exact spot where my son and 3 others were standing. Had he hit us, there would have been death and dismemberment, I'm sure of it. It was terrifying to think your son is going to die, and as a mother, there isn't a damn thing you can do about it. The coward on Hired Gun didn't even have the decency to make sure that everyone on our boat was okay. We've all been in touch with the Coast Guard investigator, and I'm sure this will be taken care of.

That is completely ridiculous. I was on the boat, we were scared to death and there was nothing necessary about it. Get your head out of the water and see the real truth about this guy.

The sad part is he may be out there doing it again at this very moment.

Looking back at what I wrote I want to apoligize for using the word "necessary." If the story is true then what he did is VERY wrong, and I can't believe something like that would happen. What I was trying to say is there has to be some sort of reason why he would do something like this, there is no excuse for it, but am curious to hear why it happened, whether they were fishing his wrecks, etc. I was more upset from people posting that had heard rumors and not gone to any source to hear what really happened. After reading everyone's post, especially the people that were part of it, I understand. I'm glad the people aboard the other boat are ok. Sorry for sounding the way I did, didn't realize until I re-read my post, just kind of shocked from the story.

Sincerely,

Pete

I never seen the hired gun out there but this capt waitzman is breaking my balls with this poor boatsmanship. Lifes too short to put up with doinks who endanger people with bad manners and such.

I have had boats run up on me over the years on private and public spots. I ask them on the radio if they need help fishing.:shedevil Burn the fuel and fish deep. Bring a :takephoto

Trish, glad everything turned out alright. I understand where you're coming from. The "what could have happened" can really tear you up. I hope that experience didn't totally ruin your son's b-day fishing trip
