You're looking at the pro-fishing boat of Bryan Maess. He's a commercial fisherman and guide on the Columbia River in Oregon. He's currently on a guide trip, sharing his love of fishing with the other two on the boat.

Also, meet Marlin Larsen. A 73 year old skipper making a high-speed run up the river. Unfortunately, Marlin never allegedly saw Bryan, and plowed right through his boat.

Lawsuits have been filed, it's alleged cell phone distraction was the cause, and the courts will settle it all out at a later date... but dang, that's an impressive fail. Even more so since everybody walked away with nothing more than a shiver from swimming in cold winter waters.
