FT: [H]ow to run a political boat parade: at either very high or very low speeds, in open water, and not in single file. The Trump boat parade on Saturday in Texas failed to do these things, and ended up fighting an opponent more formidable than any Democrat: physics. ... Alphaville was not at Lake Travis over the weekend, so again we have to rely on the float plan as it was described by ABC News. The key detail: The plan was to run at 10 miles per hour. It was good that the organisers wanted to avoid high-speed collisions. But that was exactly the wrong speed for a boat parade of planing hulls.
