I think he's on the couch watching his beloved Raiders get their lunch handed to them by the Niners.

on a seriouse note;
the boat was de-rigged, motors off to Sterling hull back to Skater for repair. He was not hurt in the incident other than his ego, I would imagine.

If I remember right the original plan was to put outboards on the boat as it was anticipated that Merc was going to unveil some new high hp O/B's and when they did not the project was switched to I/O's (if they would fit). Skater reconfigured the boat for I/O's and Arnesons creating a bad ass ride. Awesome paint scheme/colors on that rig. There was a feature on it in Extreme Boats mag a couple of years ago. I believe it was set up with a foot throttle so owner could drive and throttle without taking his hands off the wheel. There was a great video of it somewhere running REAL fast on some glass smooth water, I'll see if I can find.
Wassup Spitfire?
