T W (6/12/2008)As I've read this thread in amazement I thought that I would share something that I saw today as we were pulling in the Destin harbor at high noon. After rounding the point we look over and see a boat , well past the " no wake zone," heading north along the point so fast we thought there was either a mechanical or maybe even a medical emergency that prevented his slowing down. He came so close to the rocks that from my vantage point, collision seemed certain. Now everyone is in total disbelief of what they just witnessed, speculation is that maybe this thing is a runaway. After narowly missing the rocks, there was no missing that shoal. She stopped on a dime and I'm pretty sure she gave nine cents change back. If only I'd of had the video rolling. Anyway, just thought I would share what I saw today because said vessel is the subject of this thread.




well how In(surance)convenient :doh



I do so hope his carrier reads this thread

Burnt Drag (6/3/2008) EC was approaching this spot on a 130 Degree heading when this HG boat approached from around 60 degrees. (EC's Port)The poor fellow decided that running over another charter boat seemed to make perfect sense. The Emerald Coasts capt allowed the vessel to get within 20 feet to assure there would be a near event. .
So the emerald coast was motoring slowly neara spot when the hired gun was running on a course and didn't go around? What, was thepilot of the hired gunasleep?

welldoya (6/12/2008)This is an unfortunate and unnecessary thing to have happen but for those of you that are spouting off about shooting if anybody approaches you, I'm reminded of when I was doing roofing work during summers while attendingcollege about 30 years ago.

Our foreman was a rough old bird and one day one of the roofers got pissed at him and threatened to go home, get his gun and come back and shoot him. The foreman looked right at him and said "They didn't just make one gun, sell it to you and quit."

I would wager that well over half of the boats out there have a gun on board, probably a much larger percentage when talking about boats that are going well offshore. Do you really want to escalate something like this into a gunfight, especially with family on board ?

What happens when you pull out your .38 snubnose and he pulls out his AR-15 ? Something to think about.


No one said anything in this topic about pulling a gun. Where did you get that?

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?


Are you the owner of Ship's Chandler or the son perhaps?
