Any loss of life is tragic and something else is tragic is that the patientís family is suing Yankee airboats for wrongful death and Yankee is closed till it is over if they lose it will not reopen they should not be suing Yankee there was nothing wrong with the boat I think they make the best airboats they can be repaired no matter what un like the fiberglass ones they get week from the vibration and the Canadian ones stern are to high and they block the draft and you lose performance and the draft gets pushed back to the front along the bottom its to bad they are great guys I sent them my support and hopefully enough guys will so they will reopen if you want to send them an e-mail with your support there e-mail is
