Default WOW just saw the accident in Miami with Jason P.

I just got my Miami DVD from Freeze Frame and Man I just saw the accident in with Jason P driving. All I can saw is WOW. Plumb Girl you could not have been more wrong with your assesment of the accident. As I figured I highly doubt you were there at all. There was no hose down as you said in fact they were the ones that hosed down Jaws in a HUGE way almost taking them out in the process. The whole rest of the field was turning left and Jason's boat just kept going strait on. I can not believe the impact as well all I can say is that the guys in Pier 57 had some one watching over them.

Default the accident

I also saw the Freeze Frame tape of the JP accident. That boat was totally out of control. Its a wonder that more boats were not destroyed! Yes DW is a lucky guy.

I happend to see video also it looked like JP's boat didn't plan on turning even to this day, maybe they thought they were still doing kilo runs.

It had to be that old Art Lilly magic I have seen him in more close calls than I care to remember and have heard about many more-he's gone through about 3 cat's worth of lives at this point He sure as hell can throttle a boat though

Catman: JP was running in 4th place as I could see it Pier 57 up front, but almost side by side with Jaws on the inside. Then another boat came btwn Jaws and Pier 57 (sorry I can not remember who it was at this time) and took the lead. Then they all slowed into the corner and out of no were comes JP up the inside and hoses down Jaws HARD and then goes right behind the 1st place boat and into the side of Pier 57. It happend so fast it is unreal. The onboard from Jaws is also AWSOME. (yes awsome, Yes I am from NE but it actually is the best adjective for this accident) Well worth the purchase.

The boat that came between boats was Reverie...The European boat with the V12s in it...that was one fast boat...Just a quick question...Isnt it customary for Rookies to start to the outside???

Question Hey Audiofn:

Where did you see the onboard camera for Jaws?

It wasnt' on my Freezeframe DVD. . .?

Let me know, I'll really like to see it.

Thanks!
