"Chief Michels confirmed that the second boat left the scene, but said so only after the Coast Guard had responded and escorted the two occupants back to Lake Montauk. "

OH boy, my reading comprehension obviously sux. But this is a copy from the other website:

Please help! Hit and run montauk, my boat is totaled
Hello everyone, Last night, sept 17, I was fishing the south side of montauk light. I was fishing in a 21.5 FT Seaswirl Striper. At approximately 11 PM, I was drifting, and fishing, and my navigation lights were on. I was struck broadside by a larger boat that was under full power, up on a plane.

Several witnesses came to help, but the boat who hit me turned off his lights and left the scene. I did not get a good look at the boat that hit me. One witness described the boat as approximately a 26-28 White Center Console, very new looking, with twin Yamaha outboards.

My friend and I were not hurt, as we jumped out of the boat at impact. My boat however, is totaled.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, if you have ANY information on what happened, or have seen a boat remotely similar to the description with front end damage, please message me. My boat, and much of my gear is a total loss.

this sure seems to NOT fit in with the CG report !

I spent 3 years stationed at USCG Station Montauk. This happens more often then you think. Incidents like this occur almost monthly during the season. This guy was probably half in the bag. The fact he was on plane means he was not fishing and after leaving the scene, I can assume he was probably drunk. If he was sober and just distracted, he would have hung around. It would have been nothing more than a $200 negligent operation ticket.

I had a 48' boat get taken out by a 900' freighter about 60 miles offshore. No radarman on duty (they are required to have one by law). Only thing that saved the people on board was the EPIRB that when off. They had forgotten about it and thought they were dead, until we showed up.

I feel for these guys, but it is doubtful they will find the folks that hit them. Unless someone opens their mouth or a legit boat yard see's the damage and puts the story together they are in the wind. This guy should just be thankful everyone is Ok.

No radioman? When was this the 80s? We haven't had them and decades. And back then most ships only had one radio operator from my knowledge.. And he was usually a wacko
