    Audiofn - you are correct with both the original speeds and setup being so critical. As everyone on this board is aware, the difference between safe handling and faster speeds is a very fine line when it comes to x-dimension, prop diameters, etc. I suspect this may have been a contributing factor with this weekend's incident at LOTO. Obviously there were many changes made to pickup 40 +- mph since new and handling had to suffer somewhere.

    Sounds like it must have been quite a sight. Either way, mechanical failure, girl on the lap hitting neutral, or driver error, Let's all take a moment and thank the boating gods that everybody onboard is still here to talk about it.

    Thank you for the correction KiloKat.....
    I didn't know exactly what Chris has...I have heard sooo
    many different descriptions of the boat.
    I was making my statement from multiple postings on the board...
    I assumed would be accurate.

    What do I know...I'm just a girl anyway..

    Thank You again, KiloKat.

    That boat gets around. I have seen this boat way out here (west). It was claimed that he was doing 165 in the wee hours of the morning on Lake Havsu about a month ago. Past my 27 fever live a row boat.

    Heres another thread about this boat........

    The guy lives in Arizona not California, and as I recall Rivergirl has seen this boat in person close up (according to the pictures she had posted)

    Just a couple of comments....
    Whether it was driver error or mechanical failure, who cares as long as everyone on board was ok and for that matter this gorgeous boat is ok! Everyone has shown off one time or another, it happens. I sure as hell would've been running it fast in front of everyone at the bar and I would enjoy seeing someone running it fast infront of me! So don't knock the guy for driving fast, that's what the boat was built for.

    I saw this boat in Havasu at the poker run and he and his crew (friends) seemed to be a very cool bunch. I saw them talking to all the gaukers, answering questions and waving at everyone in the channel as they past. Very mature and cool I thought especially since the owner is in his early to mid 30's.

    I have never seen the owner of lickthis on the board, so if anyone knows him or anyone in the boat at the time of the accident, let them know to jump on here and give us a first hand account. Otherwise, everyone was on the outside looking in and we will never know what the deal was.

    We seen it Sunday morning moored at Lake Port(I think, the marina right beside salty dog). Then it looked like it running the glaze arm back towards the bridge Monday morning?

    Tank I was not trying to slam the guy at all. When I saw him spin all I could think was man I hope everyone is ok. Second I hope the boat is ok. Third was what would cause a boat that has the capabilities that Lick This does to spin as such a "slow" speed. Since I am not at all familiar with cats I hoped to get some ideas as to what may have happened from the guys that do drive them.

    Put your best foot forward!
