Perhaps no one wanted to be the first to say "I told you so !!!"

Jackets have been suggested countless times on this board, that it really should just be common sense by now.

A jacket can be given as a gift, but there is no way to make the person wear it... They need to do that on their own....

God bless them all......

We all talk about life jackets, and then most leave them off. My wife makes me wear mine, and i feel like a dork sometimes , but reading things like this makes me want to wear it next time. weather it would have helped here who knows?

On a side note I for one am sick and tired of the florida powerboat club making videos like the one that is posted on oso today. Complete disrespect for safety in this video and many others i have seen from them. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LGk5H...elated&search=

It is best of 2005 so hopefuly things have changed.

We've also all see the videos of boats that blew into splinters. It depends about 90% on the boat's construction.

Would it matter what angle a boat hit a wave? Instead of submarining,slaping it or hitting it mid section?

I was gonna say on the first page but didn't think it would be well-received...

you just don't know where a used boats' been before
the impacts it has seen
and accumulated structural damage and stresses aren't always apparent

these things do have a lifespan, both the ingredients and the constuction...

I think like most incidents in the end it will be determined to be a combination of things, never knowing the primary.
