This post and Boatme's should end that discussion in "this" thread. If you flip a fast open cockpit boat you will break every bone in your body, and possibly be decapitated. Water intrusion will kill you. Let's not discuss it in this thread, but there's another one someone started awhile back in GD if you'd like to read more.

My thoughts go out to the people involved in this accident.

Dito. An open discuss on safety is already good but let's not forgot the human element and spirit here. Condolences to the friends and family.
