Cool I didn't say it to be a dick. When out on the water having fun and with that much tail on the boat i can see how it's ez to not think about things. Just don't what to see something bad happen thats all. I was running to an event here called island fest and was so excited to get there I didn't see that my brother inlaw was sitting up on the engine hatch with his feet on the seat and holding on to the front grab handle. We where booking it in some choppy water airing it out from time to time. Nothing bad happened but after seeing the video of the ride I seen how bad it could have been if something did go wrong. I got grilled for it when I posted the video and learned that things like that happen just need to learn from it. I did and glad you guys did too. Cool video love the boat a tail on it .

I think a lot of the issues you are having will come from learning how to drive it properly, while doing the slalom moves you can see the tabs are down way too far, drives not set right while planning or running... take some time and learn the boat. I get the videos and stuff and the pretty ladies, but remember fiberglass is unforgiving if one of them slips when its wet. those pretty smiles can turn into tears quickly while being out of the cockpit at any speed.. I had a mechanic in my boat have to get 56 stitches to close his face.. many times Ive had to tell excited girls on the boat to calm down... go out by yourselves with someone that knows these types of boats and learn..

When posting videos like this on u tube all you are doing is giving evidence to the attorneys, god forbid there is a incident.

No tether on the wrist either. Could have gone bad real quick.

This ^^^^

Im quite sure there are actually guys on here that would gladly fly out and show you guys how to run that thing. Your boy can pay a little now to have someone that knows these boats teach him how to correctly oporate it, or pay a lot later in repairs.

Oh, and maybe not slam the throttles to the wall from an idle....free advise there.
