That's a bad accident...

...with very unfortunate results. Boating at night can be very dangerous. It's very easy to get off course and get disoriented. Go slow and consistently use your spotlight to sweep your intended course.

That old dock has been there since the 1800's and I've never before heard of anyone hitting it. There are plenty of daymarkers in the ICWW and the river that do not have a beacon and are somewhat obscured without the use of a spotlight. The river can appear as a giant "black hole" on a moonless night. Caution, caution, caution, LIGHTS and slow ahead!
