Someone's gonna get killed! Serious Post

Anyone that waterskis on Dickinson Bayou between Gum Bayou and Hwy 3 is taking their lives into their hands.
Last week I witnessed what could have been a senseless tragedy. Someone had been skiing and fell off, losing their ski's about 10yards away. While he was waiting for the boat to circle back around and pick him up, 3 "go-fast" boats came around the bend at about 50mph. One of them went right between the skier and the ski and never saw him.
I'm all for a speed limit on inland waterways like this. To me, 25mph is plenty fast enough for a recreational area.
It's just a matter of time before someone gets killed.
