Lightbulb St Cloud- Accident Update

First- thanks for all the help and prayers everyone provided.

Second- I am alive- no broken bones- just bruised up a lot.

F1-07- did you get the tag of that truck that hit me? Thanks for stopping and lending a hand.

The boat went straight up in the air- got air under the boat- I (Al- throttleman) was thrown up out of my seat and landed on Andy - driver, knocked him out and he went under the steering wheel, and then I rolled off the back of the boat (at about 80 mph). My helmet broke, the jacket came unzipped, but it was still on.

Guess I was wrong...I assumed when you mentioned tag from truck this happened on the road.

Wow, that sounds...ummm...scary! Glad to hear no major injuries. Anything happen to the boat? Did this happen early in the first race? We thought we saw a major splash from the other side of the coarse, but didn't know what happened!

Yes- we were on the first lap on the first race- second start. I guess a lot of other boats was experiencing the same **** on the corner.
