Rivergirl this was at Lake of the Ozarks. I am not saying the spray was or was not from tabs, I just know that is what it looks like when you run a V-hull (the only thing I have any experience with) with the tabs in to much. This thing may not even have tabs, don't skaters ussually have a "tunnel tab"?
At any rate Cord saw a slow start into the turn and I saw a kind of fast spin. Hard to know what happend. He was definatly going in a straite line and not turning. As soon as he got the boat running again did take off slow and left in the direction that he was originally headed in. Scarry stuff.
