Don't go fast and turn hard, had a buddy spin one out a whlie back and tossed him and his wife out the boat and his daughter got the boat under controla nd went back and picked them up. Not cool, stepped boat problems.

I'm thinking a bit more details would be called for in a claim like that... Sea conditions, driver experiance etc.. Thats a tank of a boat, not really the type prone to spin...

It happened on a river here at about 60 mph, owner had the boat a year and half and boats 3 to 4 time a week. Sorry no pictures. Just a heads up since I believe thats what the guy wanted, Info.

There is one at LOTO that spun out and I think it sunk also. The owner had never had a boat like that before, his prior boat was a 20(something) bayliner. He still owner the boat if I recall correctly.

That makes two.....
