Glad to hear all will be ok. I can tell you though, as a new "stepped hull" boater, I am VERY nervous about making turns in this boat at speed. I had a 23ft CL with a moderate deadrise with no steps and could turn that thing on a dime at a good speed. After seeing and reading how different all these stepped hulls handle, I won't attempt to turn much at all at speed. Not saying that this was the cause of the accident at all, just that me being a "newbie" to this boat, I just don't risk it. Like someone said, "anything CAN and WILL happen". Just be careful out there folks.
