Default "NDE"s on your boat?

Have you had any "NDE"s...or Near Death Experiences on your boat? Could you describe them? I know that this is not a funny thing nor is it meant to be. People die out there all the time. I just wanted to hear about the experiences some have had...knowing how close they were to the other side...but luckily escaping. For the number of ones that don't make it, think how many more get that close but survive.

Damn, that was one helluva an eject. Did something break - had to be something broke - or did you hook? Boat looked like it was running straight through the turn. What the hell happened?

It's racing - but a wild ride.

Yeah, someone show's up with 9 posts and want's to know how many times you were almost killed on the water
I didn't even know what a NDE was until I clicked on this thread. Must be an insurance Co. word that I didn't know existed.

I've never had a "NDE" on the water, or anyplace else - I was always smart enough to get myself out of a bad situation before it turned into a NDE.
