To all,

I wanted to let you know what happen last night with me wakeboard and two boats racing on Lake McQueeney so you too could be on the look out for the boat\people in my story below.

At about 7:40 p.m. last night (6-11-2007) I had fallen while wakeboarding. As usual the drive of the boat was making the turn to pick me up in front of us about 900 yards (estimating) two boats (white pickled fork boat and dark blue direct drive with a tower) started racing with a clear view of my boat and me in the water. The direct drive was the one closest to my boat and as they started racing the direct drive hit some wakes and became nose up and this time the boat had to be doing 50+ (again estimating) and no slow down insight even though he knew there was a boat with a down skier in the water. By the time I saw the boat straight up and down and not slowing down I tried to swim to get behind my boat for fear I was going to be hit. When the boat passed me it was no more than 10 yards away from me and my boat.

I tried to wakeboard again but could not as my nerves were too rattled. I got back into the boat and went to look for them to get some sort or reason why he thought a race was more important than the life of a human. When we confronted the drive in the boat and had a heat exchange of words. I found out his reason was that he was an owner of a boat shop in town called X-tream boats and that according to him he had complete control of his boat. Also it was my fault because I was wakeboarding to late (8 pm).

I have filed a report with the Sheriffs office but also wanted to let as many people know about this guy and his boat so everyone can be safe.

Thanks
