Default Old 32 Skater Crash

Does anybody remember the 32? Skater that stuffed and totally disentergrated back in the 90's or 80's. I remember seeing this crash in one of the Havoc videos and I'm now having an obsessive moment trying to find the name of the boat and maybe the video.

I think I saw that crash when the OPT races were on TV back then. What an impact! Did Tom Slamecka survive?
