Mike..Im no expert...and especially on a cat...That happened to me at the Jacksonville run as we were told 1-2's out there from the river to the ocean.. Hammertime and I were cruising along at 60-70mph and bam...a 4-5' came out of nowhere..I noticed just wiith my V keeping the drives at nuetral or just below worked well..

Mike I've seen those loop restraints on Skaters that are mounted on each side of the seat. I think they would build confidence in your passengers when they can hold on to them and keep themselves in the bolsters during "flight" lol.

Do you have life jackets for all your passengers? I couldn't tell from the vid.
O Yea... Everyone had Life jackets on... Would not run without them... I have the Nortech T handles to hold on to between the seats... I have sat in the back of other Nortech's that had them and they seem sufficient...
