I read that story!! You are one lucky SOB!!! That is a shame about your boat, looks very clean!
I was tossed out of an Apache running over 80 on the NYC poker run in '99. No life vest, got knocked out and luckily was found by one of the other 3 guys tossed!! I always wear my lanyard and when I'm running hard or the water turns ugly on goes the sospenders!!
