86. Out of Control

As the man tried to swing the speed boat around, the steering wheel came away in his hands. He waved desperately to his companion, who had been water skiing for the last fifteen minutes. Both men had hardly had time to realize what was happening when they were thrown violently into the sea. The speed boat had struck a boy, but it continued to move very quickly across the water. Both men had just begun to swim towards the shore, when they noticed with dismay that the speed boat was moving in a circle. It now came straight towards them at tremendous speed. In less than a minute, it roared past them only a few feet away. After it had passed, they swam on as quickly as they could because they knew that the boat would soon return. They had just had enough time to swim out of danger when the boat again completed a circle. On this occasion, however, it has slowed down considerably. They petrol had nearly all been used up. Before long, the noise dropped completely and the boat began to drift gently across the water.
Lepas kendali. Sebagai orang mencoba untuk ayunan speed boat sekitar, roda kemudi datang pergi di tangannya. Dia melambai mati-matian untuk temannya, yang telah ski air untuk lima belas menit terakhir. Kedua pria itu hampir tidak punya waktu untuk menyadari apa yang terjadi ketika mereka dilemparkan keras ke laut. The speed boat telah menyerang anak laki-laki, tetapi terus bergerak sangat cepat di air. Kedua pria baru saja mulai berenang ke arah pantai, ketika mereka melihat dengan cemas bahwa speed boat bergerak dalam lingkaran. Sekarang datang langsung ke arah mereka dengan kecepatan yang luar biasa. Dalam waktu kurang dari satu menit, itu meraung melewati mereka hanya beberapa kaki jauhnya. Setelah itu berlalu, mereka berenang di secepat mereka bisa karena mereka tahu bahwa kapal akan segera kembali. Mereka hanya punya cukup waktu untuk berenang keluar dari bahaya ketika perahu lagi menyelesaikan lingkaran. Pada kesempatan ini, bagaimanapun, telah melambat jauh. Mereka bensin telah hampir semua habis. Sebelum lama, kebisingan turun sepenuhnya dan perahu mulai melayang lembut di air.
