I edited as you posted thinking the same thing about those seconds.Originally Posted by wcmarine
back in '94 or '95 I stood my 26' Thoroughbred on it's transom at 75-80. The air shot put the x-wife completely over her bolster from a sitting hanging on position right down on her butt/lower back on the floor in front of the backseat. I held on to the wheel and rode it out but came down on my bolster headrest so hard I had a completely bruised cheek for a month.
We were lucky. From that day forward whenever the blower whine got loud I got a dirty look and sometimes screamed at. She was done.
I carry the lesson of that day with me, to this day. Respect for how fast things can go wrong.
