Oops. That guy should just stick to driving like a retard while not on film.
I have never understood the "gotta hurry up & haul ass to sit & catch something I can buy at Long John Silver's" thing these guys do.
Hey, to each their own.

As you can see the boat never turned over. Greg suffered a cracked Sternum, broken ribs and almost broke his neck and collarbone.

I'm showing this in hopes that a lot of you Bass Boat Drivers have gotten lazy about putting your Vest on and hooking up your kill switch. All of you have hit a suprise wave from out of nowhere at speeds of 70 mph or more.


Don't let this happen to you."
That guy could have NEVER swam, or treaded water IF he had even been concious.

Now imagine that in a boat that weighs 4 times as much...

Why was he in the water for 10 minutes????? Were they deliberately testing the life vest.??? I think the person filming would have got him out of the water a little quicker than that.

3 Weeks ago a guy on the water between Sacramento and the Delta got tossed out of his bass boat not wearing his laynard and the boat was going in circles running him over again and again while his buddy watched helpless. Obviously killed him. Way too sad
