    Kook, glad you are ok and I hope your friend has a speedy recovery.

    I know it's been sad a lot but accidents happen. You were boating safer than a lot of us do by the sounds of it. Don't beat yourself up.

    Kook, I think a lot of us are reading this and thinking it could have been me. I just bought 94 Aggressor with a 502 motor. There is no doubt the boat is hairy over 70mph, I have only ventured over that twice. I hope other 25 Sunsation owners are taking a good look at what happened here and think twice about adding heavy power to these boats. Let this be a lesson to all of us just how vunerable we are out there and to realize how fun can turn into tragedy. By what you have written and the external steering on the boat, it looks as if you were taking all the safety precautions, but sometimes these just aren't enough. Our hopes and prayers are with you and your friend for a good recovery. Thank God that we aren't repeating the HTM crash.

    Kook, as bad as your accident was, it could have been worse. Your friend is still not out of the woods yet, but with everyones prayers and/or wishes, hopefully he will ride with you again.

    Accidents happen ... my lesson was not a severe as yours, I hurt my brother-in-law due to a hardware failure. We weren't wearing vest and I wasn't hooked up. I was lucky.

    As Jon said, I wear my vest 99% of the time. Mostly I do it for my family and I do it for my friends by making them feel guilty for not wearing theirs.

    I was the one riding a Harley with a helmet before they had a helmet law in California ... for the family.

    We play in a wild frontier and it has its inherent dangers .... play hard but play safe.

    Sorry to hear about all of this. It sounds as if you certainly took the necessary precautions, too bad that can't be enough to get us through it all. My thoughts and prayers are w/ you and your buddy!
