If memory serves me the hatches were also open?

I love it they say the same boat over and over.

Look at all the HUGE boats that the ocean has taken

The way that boat was flying he must have had the tabs almost all the way down and a bow tank full to the top.

If you boat on the Great Lakes, you're going to occasionally get water across your deck. It's like a bathtub on some days- no predictable wave spacing many times. This one was probably avoidable though.

Looked like the drives were all the way in, just pushed it down in the hole. At least he wasn't running fast and over his head.

MTI- is that Speed Racer on a test run?
Geez - anytime someone brings up the Great Lakes, it almost turns into an APACHE thread.
Yes, the Great lakes can get rough, and Chris is absolutely right about having waves coming out of nowhere.
I've experienced it - running along in heavy snotty water, and all of a sudden there is just nowhere to go. Stuff.
Agree, that one looked avoidable.
