The Florida Turnpike is absolutely horrible for such. I was towing Monsoon home from Pompano Beach in early May, and had several cars come together and start spinning everywhere about 300 yards before a toll booth. I just powered through, and narrowly threaded the needle, and missed them. If I had hit the brakes, I would have been collected.

Glad everyone is OK.

Sorry my first reaction was HOLY SH!T!!!. Boats and trucks can be replaced or repaired but human lives are just a little different. Sorry to hear about this though. Glad everyone is OK

I really appreciate all the thoughtfulness. I am hoping the companies insurance will see this boats true value I spent 6+ months making it a real head turner. First boat I've had my wife actually loved and felt safe in. Glad we are not injured real bad hope to be back behind the wheel of another Skater real soon. Thanks for the support.

I hope you guys recoop. from your bruizes & scratches, soon.
I just starting to fill stiff after mine. Especeially now that the event is actually setting in, and depressing me.
We both have a lot of rebuilding to do. I spend a lot of time on my boat also to get it ready for KW. I know how you feel. Good luck.

you should get a good check up where ever you are sore, I didn't and got stuck paying for knee surgery and was out of work for 9mons. sorry for your loss of boat and truck also talk to a lawyer to make sure you get what you need for the toys and pain and suffering ,I hope the cops gave the guy a ticket or three, failure to stop, sleeping behind the wheel, being a moron. I would make sure you get MRI 's on your back ,shoulders to make sure you did not tear anything. I am finding out the hard way, about tears in my shoulders I did not know I had until last yr now I get injections every few months to calm them down. The funny think I new when it happened but thought it was just a bruises that would go away which they did after a few months but came back to haunt me. so be safe art

Those photo's are just horrid to look at. Glad that everyone was not seriously injured. Boats and trucks can be replaced, but the good people that use them, cannot.
