Anyone know if the outdrives survived it? That looks like the turbine boat.

Doesn't look like he was trying to turn ... looks like the boat just got out of shape, rolled on it's side and then hooked


I didn't see first hand, but it looks like what was described when Barbarino (sp) hooked his boat in the SCOPE poker run a few years back

That was the TEAM AMF 51' Turbine outerlimits running in the Cape Cod race in June. As you can see, it doesnt take much to spin out. They were not in a turn. If you were unsuspecting passengers, you could have easily been ejected from the boat. a little bow steer and hooked. Thats all it takes at those speeds.
