That sounds very irresponsible for the conditions to me. But, what do I know. He was probably going faster then that to run a boat 1100 feet on shore without a trailer.

Glad everyone is OK.

I don't think most on here care if an AT, Baja, Hustler, or Winnebago went into the marsh. I think most care that no-one was hurt.
That is a blessing!

If it was a Cig it would have been 2200 feet in, those hulls are that much faster

you can see my sence of humor about what happend at our event

By the way this is the actual boat pic from him beaching then i made the cover over it
I ran aground at that poker run with a broken drive while idleing in on one motor. It was a total white out.

Maybe I should get another boat. Look at all the fun I'm missing.

They claim it was a salvage even though it was only towed off a mucky sand botoom at high tide.
