Past posts where?
I was wondering the same thing. The boat has been up for some time now. I know it got a little tense (rightfully so) over in the HotBoat forum about speculation, second geussing and just plane lack of respect in some cases. Not looking for rumors but there must be new info out there.

I'm just having a tough enough of time trying to imaging the forces involve to rip an engine out. Mind boggling.

Jim..I don't know why yet..I have read alot of different things about the crash and most are probably just rumors..I just would hate to see such a terrible accident turn in to some kind of scandle that would hurt the names of the dead or living people or the boat manufacture for that matter...The fact for right now is that they are dead and that is gonna take the families some time to get over it..My point ..???..I don't know

Supercrash, I understand... I thought about that when I read that they had homicide detectives on the case. Hope that's just SOP. When people die from accidents related to what we all do, we want to know what happened to minimize the possibility of it happening to us.

Cigarette 1:
I wouldnt think we would ever get anything of substance or fact from the media. I do believe they (investigators) are going to be looking to experts (some maybe on this board) as to what may or may not fail on our boats. Im sure they are going to want a fiberglass shop to look at the damage.
