No, they did not. The point was that bravos would bury in the soft bottom, surface drives would not.

The Canni family was orig from Massapequa, they owned Scarab's in the past, Superboats, very experianced. I think because of the surface drives they got much closer to the marsh land. Not sure if the Diesel were both RH or L& RH rotation. but if both RH the drives may have spun it to one side when hitting land if the motors were still running at WOT on land. below is the Ch 11 link with video.

So Bravos would stop instantly? Even if they hit the marsh while in a sharp turn?

Your reaching at best for something not related. Run aground in that area under the same conditions and write a report. Else all speculative and tastelessly so.

This is a terrible tragedy.
Growing up on the southshore, i know what its like to boat in those waters.

No offense to anyone, but there is no reason to be pushing 40ft offshore HP boats in these back waters. Its not what they were designed to do, nor is it a great idea.

Everything had a role in this tragedy. Stop being so defensive about the type of drives. No one is blaming Arneson that I have read.

Let these families RIP.

Saw this in the Post yesterday as well, tragic. The only thing more tragic is the heartless comments left by the masses in the Post.
