Default Another Cig wreck

I am surprised that Cig still hasnt addressed the spin issue. This looks like a brand new boat.

Anyone who's ever owed a stepped boat should know that the accident was caused by operator error. Have you never heard that you don't cut the throttles in a turn with driving a stepped boat?

Great argument for lanyard usage.

Looks more like a high-side to me; more of a "roll" issue...

Great reason to use a lanyard and take Tres' school!

Also what is it with Cig's rolling up like that?

The problem is between the steering and the seat not the boat.

They want steps to go fast let them learn how to drive it.

Have you ever stoped to think that if you can't slow down while turning then its a huge safety problem and a design flaw. After all, should you have to turn to avoid another boat......and slow down........ your SOL. You couldn't pay me to put my family in that boat.
