If a passenger in my boat damages said boat with his or her face or anyother body part for that matter....their fk'n PAYIN' to fix it

Boat was running real nice. You can see the driver loosened it up right before that happened. That's what happens when the helicopter is running next to you...Get a little lost in the moment

I wonder how long the guys' face was jacked up after the face plant?
Passenger rule no 1. "Always pay attention"
Passenger rule number 2. "Read rule 1 again"

That Sunsation mishap a while back was on Brightcove.tv which I think has been shut down.

LUCKY! VERY!!

A member here put his buddy in a permanent coma a couple years ago with a move similar to that.

Also, Emerald Coast Poker Run--East Pass--ring any bells? That one is on video too; and cost a passenger a pelvis.

It's interesting how a helicopter affects boat handing skills.

this shows that just because someone has the money, doesn't mean that should be able to step into a boat like that.
