Glad to hear everyone is alright. It does get a little rough up on this end of the lake on the weekends. What size DCB is it?

It is a 34' boat, was running 60 to 70 and yes it has a tunnel tab. It was the second roller that got him.

Sounds like it did a little more than just once over and back upright...

hard to time those cruiser rollers with the washing machine on. My cat is so small that I give it gas when hitting the first roller so that my nose stays up when I hit the second. little launches.

Why do you say that? He hooked a sponson went over once and landed upright. The first thing in mind was the passengers. So they were tended to. The boat was full of water and going down. When someone tried to pull it to shallower water the water patrol would not let them. So it went down. It was brought back up with in a few hours and we went to work drying it out. Everything was drained, we filled the engines and drived full of Diesel. It is now home and is comming completely apart. I think that is pretty much it.

Yes, all were very lucky, and they are doing well. The DCB is already on the road to getting well too. We were really surprised that the damage was so minimal.
It was just bad timing. And you don't expect the big cruiser wakes that far up stream. At least we didn't use to. Saturday's on LOTO are pretty rough. That is why mine mostly stays on the lift on weekends.

Glad everyone will be alright. What good is it to live on a lake that you can't take your boat out on the weekend, because it's too ROUGH?! I, personally can't make time to boat during the week, so the weekend is the only time we have to boat? Sounds like LOTO has too many OCEAN cruisers running around on it!
Still looking forward to the Shootout!
