The 30' HTM that Steve, Chuck, & Ken were in was traveling way faster then 80, closer to 130 - 140 when something locked up or malfuctioned. The boat also hooked and rolled achieving a fairly large amount of alltitude, but it did not kite. I live up the street from Chuck's former home and my neighbor across the street was on the lake the day of the accident. Looking at the transom of the boat, after they finally got it out of the water, I would say they lost a motor or drive. One of the engines is still at the bottom of the lake to the best of my knowledge so everyones opinions are all speculation including mine.
