Dang man, I'm glad you are alright. I've been on one of those boats, they just haul ass across that lake. But I'm amazed the idiot did not see you, specially in a bright colored kayak. That is a beautiful area, try to enjoy it then move on. You don't won't to end up in a Guatemalan jail. It's funny my only complaint while I was there was the same, the few rude people I ran into were fellow Americans. I guess they want to have an "authentic" experience so don't want to talk with other Americans.
