1600 block First St., man and woman took boat out for test drive, boat broke down somewhere near South Bass Island, couple wanted charges against boat owner for putting them in danger.





WOW, really? Have they ever drove a car? Taken a flight in a plane? THIS is what is wrong with America today....NOONE takes resposibility for themselves....blame someone else, sue them! I am sure they are tramatized and will want to file a civil suit now! The boat broke down. Unless they can PROVE the owner/dealer tinkered with it to MAKE it break down, it was a machine that QUIT working! Happens everyday. I have seen brand new cars broke down on the side of the road. I had a new hand mixer that NEVER turned on and I had to return it. S H ! T happens. (i wonder if they still want to buy a boat?)

What owner in their right mind would deliberately tamper with a boat to make it break down during what I assume to be a test "drive" from a potential purchaser??? Besides boats are not driven they are piloted. Sounds like it could have been just a free pleasure ride to me. How far does one have to go for a test "drive". Was the boat owner with them when the boat broke down? How is one to know if the boat wasn't abused during the test "drive". Suck it up you lily livered water rat. If you can't handle the potential dangers of the water don't go trying to get yourself a boat.
