Lanyards should not be up to the owner/driver to have to worry about, Cigarette and all the other manufactures should be installing sensors in the cockpit floor so when the drivers leaves the seat the engines quit !
Come on people, don't keep putting the blame on a guy who has enough money to buy the boat but not enough brains to take the Tres Martin course.
I hope these manufactures take notice and do what is necessary to protect the rocks on the shores of Bulgaria !
LOL! ...and the trailer manufacturer. How dare they design a trailer that enabled this poor driver to tow such a dangerous boat to the water!

Go fast, learn your lessons and stop blaming the other guy.

That is truly the American way.....

Not blaming and trying to suck money out of the entity that tried to help you.

Move on and learn.

cause it doesn't have a step hull, I got a video of my boat in 2 1/2 to 3 foot seas off of capecod my buddy was filming I went from 70mph cut back tucked in adjusted my tabs in seconds to do a tight turn, they thought I was nuts but I planned it my boat stuck to the water and made the turn if I had a stepped hull I would have spun out instead of flipping sideways which would have been bad. that was slow speed
