MuddyBottomBluz Posted May 16, 2021 Report Share Posted May 16, 2021 Was hanging out at Jewfish creek in Key Largo for my daughters birthday weekend Saturday and I see the tow boat captain running through the parking lot jumping into his boat and head South, FAST! Then I hear the sirens, saw the Coast Guard circling on the South side of Blackwater Sound. Turns out a local guy just had a new Mercury 400 XS motor installed on his 21 foot Reaction and went out to test it. Then this happened (do not bother with the video, has nothing to do with the story) https://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/community/florida-keys/article251455008.html Tow boat captain came back and was hosing blood off his boat and said the guy had a mangrove branch through his head, estimated speed between 70-80 MPH. When he got to the boat in the mangroves the throttle was pegged! He said it was pretty bad and obviously it was! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
