Sure looks like a Hustler. Porposing, starts turn, gets some transom lift on the bounce, comes back down with drives turned, bow steer, starts to slide....bummer!

I edited as you posted thinking the same thing about those seconds.

back in '94 or '95 I stood my 26' Thoroughbred on it's transom at 75-80. The air shot put the x-wife completely over her bolster from a sitting hanging on position right down on her butt/lower back on the floor in front of the backseat. I held on to the wheel and rode it out but came down on my bolster headrest so hard I had a completely bruised cheek for a month.
We were lucky. From that day forward whenever the blower whine got loud I got a dirty look and sometimes screamed at. She was done.
I carry the lesson of that day with me, to this day. Respect for how fast things can go wrong.

It looks like they are crossing a wake, three in a row. They are at a very bad angle to the waves, almost parallel. Go over the first into the second. The third,he back off the throttle, the front of the boat dips, hits the side. The boat does not push through the wave, it pushes the boat. It goes donw hil from there. I didn't know you can watch the video in full screen.

This situation happened to a very good friend of mine in fl.

He had a Super Hawaii that had a bad porpoising problem. He was
going about 45 mph and started a left turn to enter channel from
river. As he was turning he crossed a small wake from a boat that
had just passed. The bow came over the wake dove down and bow
steered, put the boat entirely on its starboard side. His son was in the
passanger bolster and was thrown out bouncing off of his shoulder as he
went past. His wife was in the rear seat and was ejected. The boat slid
on it's side for about 60 feet with the right side of his face in the water.

The boat righted itself , meanwhile his wife was now in the middle of the
river with boat traffic coming. Luckily his friend saw it happen and went to her before she could be hit by oncoming boats. Needles to say the boat
got sold and his wife, although she still goes out, is always a nervous wreck. I had her in my boat and the entire time I'm driving she's poking
me in the back to slow down.

Unhappy Re: Boat wreck video

At First My Blood Was Pumping ! Then To Watch The Ass End Kick Out And Hook, Then Role . I Couldn't Tell If There Was Any Movement.. It Was Very Chilling Keep The Wheel Straight And Enjoy Your Boat'[ My 2 Cents ]

similar situation happened to my girlfriend and i in a 28 apache. dropped in a big cruiser wake hole that i didnt see until the last second. i had just enough time to yell HOLD ON. shot out of the hole wrong and came down hard on the starboard side. girlfriend bounced off the side of my bolster, then bounced to the floor between the backseat and passenger bolster. learned a lesson that day. you CAN get hurt even when you "think" your in control. if the Apache wouldnt of had hydraulic stearing things could have ended a lot worse.
