Sorry, but seeing just how close he came to some of the people in the water this looks like "way-beyond-judgement close" to me. He obvioulsy is an excellent pilot but I doubt that he ever deadsticked...

Yes, of course, but the pilot must not necessarily be the negligent one in the chain of events that lead to the accident. It might have it's origin with his instructors and examiners, who either did...

I think it all lies in the definition of "negligence" as a legal term, not the everyday meaning. The Wikipedia article (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Negligence) makes interesting reading because...

The high price must be mainly due to liability issues and paperwork because these things cost around 150$/Euros/GBP for homebuilt aircraft. Which is still 100 times the cost of the parts... But...
