We did the run last year in a 35 Outlaw with 700's and it's very rough, my thoughts to all involved. Very sad news.

Very very sad. Though I can't remember when and where, I'm sure I met Kevin at one point.

RIP. Prayers for the family

We were on the right bank on our houseboat. MOTORS OFF and drifting with the wind! They had passed us and were 1/2 to 3/4 mile past us starting to make a left turn. There were lots of boats on both sides of that turn and it was close in there. He had to turn hard left because he didn't have room to make a wide easy turn. Hooked and barrel rolled at speed.
Didn't see any houseboats near!
That's kinda what it looked like looking at the 1st pic tank posted, looks like boat was hard left, (sideways) caught, then rolled. Very very sad condolences to family and friends
