Boat Rage???? Attempted Murder???

BOAT RAGE!!!!!!!!

The scene at the city-owned Kernwood Marina was chaotic when Salem police and harbormaster boats arrived at about 5:30 p.m. last Sunday. Witnesses were pointing at a boat that was partly under water at the end of the boat ramp, and Silva was clutching his arm.

Silva told police he had been boating on the ocean in his new 21-foot Checkmate and was bringing it in toward the ramp when his best friend, Phillips, crashed into the side of the boat where he was standing.

Phillips’ 21-foot Godfrey pontoon boat nearly crashed into his head, the victim said, and the impact knocked him to the floor. The victim believed Phillips backed up and slammed into the boat again, this time damaging the motor.
