So why the topic heading of Sunsation boat crash ??? Sounds like CNN reporting to me where you speculate and add drama to the facts. Is OSO now the CNN of Boating Boards?
Because it is required that certain manufacturers be the object of insinuation here on OSO. Sunsation is one, Active Thunder is another - anyone remember all the "Heard a 37 AT rolled..." threads back in the day?

I'm the only NON-PERFECT boater on oso from what I read. And when I leave dog days on friday, I'm sure I will be the only person from oso that drives off in a boat.

Not trying to be a wise a$$, but this story has a semi-happy ending. People are alive and hey, the boat was out of the water in 4.5 hours.

Its a great idea , escpecialy in that 60 sportfisherman but it seems like a "bulky" item to be carrying in a performance boat.
We have a 300 GPM trash pump that we use to empty tanks etc .. It raised my 18 foot sidewinder jetboat in minutes after it sank at the dock ..and let me tell you, "DONT" put your hand or clothing near the intake side

yup yup, what amazes me is how many 100 perfect boaters we have on here...everyone is a critic, as I had said in a previous thread, I have a list of the "perfect" ones, let me see you not be perfect on a run..and you know who you are

Do you carry it on your boat,do you have a way of strapping it to the brass stripper pole to keep it from flying around in rough water ? Smitty
