I have been boating with Steve many times and have always been impressed with his safe and responsible driving and handling techniques. He has many years of high performance boating experiance and has owned several large boats over the years. I doubt that there are many people on this board short of professional racers that can handle a large powerboats better.
I have been boating on Lake Norman with Steve and recall him telling me of other accidents that have happened at this same place. It sounds to me like one of those accidents where something breaks at the absolute worse time to react.
The boat is an absolutely beautiful and was used in the Miami boat show and on all of the Velocity advertising a few years back. It has brand new 625 Ilmors in it now and had the best of all equipment installed. I am just glad to hear that no one was seriously hurt and it sounds like the boat is still in good shape.
