Default Not for nothing

We were on the water that day, cruising back, between the Witches headed to Eagle Island alongside Governor's Island. At the same time, a 25' Donzi passed on my left, and a 35 to 38 footer passed on my right. I won't claim that they were both within 50' of me, but I am certain that they were both significantly less that 100' on either side of me. I doubt either captain was aware of the 45MPH speed limit. It scared the bejezus out of me and my passengers. I hope this was an isolated incident, they certainly seemed to be racing each other with little regard for other boaters.
