Yeah he would not know anything about going 100 mph... I don't think the bayliner will hit 45mph with everything in his favor.

And it doesn't take much swell to get a 150mph cat airborne. Of course you have a Fountain so you wouldn't know. How fast is your boat did you say?
Owned!

At that point I think they may have been running on 1 engine.

So when we can take steps to avoid or minimize tragedy doing what we love, we ought to do it. Requiring life jackets and helmets when racing at 160plus mph is the least we should do.
Mike,

As a long time professional offshore racer, and a Skater owner, I completely agree. Ultimately we as owners, are responsible for our safety, our passengers safety and the safety of those around us.

Jackets are mandatory for everyone on my boat, in very organized event, no exceptions, no excuses.

Helmets above a certain speed, just common sense.
