I saw this on You Tube. I would like some input as to your opinions of this guy.

Looks pretty dangerous, reminds me of an idiot on a jet ski.

Its been posted before and if I remember correctly, the owners of both boats knew each other and it was to take some out of water pics.

If that is the case, I retract my previous statements. I thought it was someone running that close to another boat that was not planned.

I had that happen to me before with jet skis. Some of them get way too close.

If that was planned why did the lady call him a Bastard? or did I not hear that right?

You guys that is satisfied1 and the lady is saying that because her camera did not work right so she couldnt get a pic. The people all knew each other. actually I think its a really cool video. Hell boats run closer than that in poker runs dont they? I had the oppurtunity to ride with them on their new boat and believe me this guy knows how to drive a boat. Nice to see someone not afraid to air their boat out a little once in awhile. Try it sometime you might enjoy it. Thats what those boats are built for right?

Stay away from me .... That is just plain stupid... it is a little different if they were running side by side an getting air shots, but that boat is a sitting duck if some mechanical failure happens at the right moment. Maybe I am too conservative. but I want to go home at the end of the day.

But I bet your the first to run side by side with another boat at WOT right? What about mechanical failure then?

uhhhh no ! and never said anything about WOT, however if you were running side by side trying to take some photos, you would be a few hundered feet apart and if one did have a mechanical failure at least the other boat is at speed and chances are will be well out of the way if the other boat did veer in your direction.... My point being is that he has a 10,000 lbs boat with maybe over 1000 HP and he is jumping boat wakes..
