hmmmm...not sure what to make of this post.
boat broke but it was driver error. Leads me to believe that the boat wont hold up if incorrectly driven. But I know thats not true.
And why are people going out in 12 - 15 footers????

ScreaminDeamon- WRONG back at you! A guy that used to live across the lake from me submarined a 43' Scarab on Lake Winebago in about 15' of water where it broke into chunks upon hitting bottom. Two people died, very sad.

I recently spoke to a guy who told me a story of flipping a boat and He, not the boat hit the bottom. About 12 feet of water.
Makes me hurt thinking about it. Also makes you think about a good PFD.

Not that this means that a boat wont hit the bottom. I think a boat would hit easy in shallow (12 foot) water.

If I remember correctly, the boat in the Video that stuffed was a Monza. I don't think it ran as delivered from the manufacturer. Supposedly the owner made modifications to the bulkheads in the front of the boat to reduce weight.

That video of the boat stuffing is sickening. Looked like he was hauling ass and having a great time until.....! Looked like a shoe box full of shipping peanuts when it came to a stop.
