OK from what I have read. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life" - - Robert A. That'll get your attention. I've never been to or participated in a poker run, but that looks like awfully tight running at some extreme speeds. Looks like they got pinched and hit a roost. Glad everyone is ok. Filmed with a potato. I've said it before, the "poker run" crowd will be the demise of responsible hi performance boating.

Got pinched and had to cross a wake of a skater, roost got the nose in the air and they went over. No where to go. And another one today. They as a hole are less forgiving to a less skillful pilot. Elimitantors come in many sizes and a 22 foot is a good reasonably priced hull.

The power plants can vary the price a lot. How big is your wallet and what are you skills? I personally don't have a water toy. The GF's family varies from a super fast drag guy to a big ass Daytona eliminator guy. When this Rzr fad wears off me I think I am going to try out a low 's little drag boat. You do realize stv built probably less than 10 carbon fiber boats and its extremely rare right? I don't even think the owners of the stv molds are doing any carbon fiber anymore.

I said I don't think they are still making cf.

We have now seen the video of the DCB M35 going over during the actual event too many times. What does this really mean, we read about and hear people talk about it. Safety for the most part seems to be people talking about life jackets, kill switches, and having rescue divers at recreational boating events. In every instance of a boat crash that I have witnesses or reviewed the boat was never the problem. Now you can say it was a mechanical failure, the drive, the steering, the tunnel tab stuck, the hull came apart.

Well in every instance of this occurrence the human was responsible for the design, engineering, replacement part, repair, or modification to the part and is really where the responsibility rests. The failure of the human to properly maintain and manage what they are riding is where the failure occurred. Professionally safety protocols are broken down into two principals; prevention and response.

Boating safety and event safely plans are primarily based upon antiquated response plans rather than prevention plans.
