I also have to answer to my girlfriend that rides with me every time these sorts of things happen. She as I do, calm way down and look at our situations in boating real closely. She likes going fast as we all do, and I try to do everything to know that we are safe. I have taken Tres's Class and we wear our jackets at all runs.

BUT, with all accidents in the past, we hardly ever get any story on what really happened. Yes, this is mostly all speculation, but needs to be discussed.

"IF".... God forbid something happened to us in our 36 Nor-Tech running at speeds like these, I would WANT someone to tell EVERYONE what went wrong whether it was my mistake or mechanical to help prevent future situations like this and maybe save a life.

Again... Its just my two cents... and my Sincere condolences to Kevins family and friends.
I agree with Erik, great post...I highlighted this section in particular, I would agree if someone can learn from a mistake, then by all means share the knowledge, but, lets wait for the results from the professionals that will determine the cause of it. this is a forum and looking at a picture of a raised drive and hypothesizing that it shorted is (imo) speculation, and doesn't need to come out at this time, we lost a comrade. Wait for the results.

i agree with all of this I was at that poker run and heard many different scenarios that weekend. All I can say that is true they were moving at a high rate of speed in a skater. I'll wait until the truth is told and again I will say nothing. A man lost his life another was seriously hurt, if it were me I would want everyone to not speculate the situation and wait for the facts. I don't want to sound like an azz hole but some people just talk because they want to be heard. I didn't even like speculating on the dock that day because everyone that saw it or thought they knew something could have been wrong,and I don't like to tell someone the wrong information because thats just me. Again not trying to be an azz. RIP kevin thoughts and prayers with everyone involved. Godspeed
