Oops, Sorry Call
it a hit and stop. A Florida Fish and Wildlife officer accidentally
knocked off one of those lovable manatees while on patrol near Brevard
County's Haulover Canal. The officer was exiting a slow-speed zone
when his boat whacked the sea cow. Although Florida doesn't
penalize boaters for striking manatees with their vessels as long
as the boats are operated lawfully, we wonder if the officer gave
himself a stern warning.
Meeting the needs of boaters in the U.S. has some builders around the world scratching their heads, but not Rio Yachts. This Italian builder knows what works and what doesn’t, and adds a creative touch and fine finish to differentiate its product from lots of other boats out there.
Have a look and see what you think. ▶
