This is a terrible loss to the boating community.
Steve (Owner of HTM), Ken Lane (Engine Builder) and Chuck aka Mr.Pumps on the boards (HTM Racing) + 1 other (Unkown) were killed today at Castaic Lake.
The boat had run 150mph earlier this week (30 HTM Twin 950 HP motors) I'm unsure how fast the boat was going during the incident. For that matter it's unsure as to what happened. For right now 1 body has been recovered and the other three have not been found. Local news showed the area from an aerial view. There was no sign of the boat, but it left a huge oil slick (more likely fuel) where it happened.
For the east coasters,
Lake Castaic is a very small (about 7-8 miles with a large C shape) but VERY DEEP lake, more then 300' in that area. They are currently looking for the wreckage of the boat and the bodies. The water is pretty murky on that lake..
I sincerely wish there was something I could do for the families to ease there pain.
