I have been racing step hulls for 4 years and this was my first spin. We tested and tested and added weight to compensate for the lost Sterlings and will continue to do so. We have been running that boat props in, props out, with extention boxes, without, and fine tuning it. In testing without safety patrols and copters we tend to take it easier. We talked about taking it up a knotch during the race and we did and it bit us. Thankfully we were not hurt, but gained valuable knowledge

Wow ... it sure didn't look like one of the typical tight turns we are accustomed to seeing when rollovers happen ... I don't think , what seemed to be, that slight of a turn should have caused the boat to hook. There are other factors in play that a pleasure boater won't know about until it is too late.

Also ... granted, I don't know the relationship of the driver and throttleman, but, without a LOT of hours together in a boat, the precision timing needed between throttle and steering input is lost .... not a good thing at speed.

Ask Phil or Neal

At that race the water was REAL nasty. You can not tell from the video at all. When that happened my boat was actually sinking. I was a little ways between truns 2 and 3. That turn was the only left turn on the race course and it was not a 90 degree on so you could go through fairly fast.
