Default Another hypothetical question

So I've been looking at and test driving boats these past couple of weeks and I've always thought about what would happen it something broke while I was driving it.....Let's just say that I decide to get on the throttle a little bit and the drive goes.....who's responsible for the new drive? Could the owner hold me responsible if the drive breaks because "I wasn't driving it right".......Has this ever happened to someone on the forum?

Someone can sue someone else for anything they want.

IMO, unless you were negligent you wouldn't be held liable.
