Luckily he wasn't hurt.
The picture was captured by a passenger on a car ferry and shows the moment the water scooter rider discovered ferries are hard.



Coastguards described the crash as a "glancing blow" and said the man - who was uninjured - was picked up by a companion on another machine. The catamaran, the 12:15 GMT from Southampton to Cowes, was undamaged.

A glancing blow ?

Ouch !

How do you not see a ferry ?

Yeah, that 'glancing blow' looks like a full on T-bone.

Sources at the scene described the man as being "enraged" stemming from an prior argument at a local bar.

Eyewitnesses to the prior altercation at the bar stated that the man became enraged over a game of darts when another patron insulted him by stating "you couldn't hit the broadside of a barn".

Now it makes sense.

Never drive angry. Case in point.

To be fair, the ferry captain should have seen the scooter also.
