I spun out a 9' dinghy with a 15 Evinrude and scared the crap out of myself. Listen to these guys, you don't want to do it in a 7000# boat

Do you still have your jet ski, or did you sell it?

You don't want to spin a performance boat.

I'm new to a step bottom and scared of it. Was hoping I could see what it did like pushing a car to where you find the limit at moderate speeds. Like I said I'm interested in listening to others to keep from messing up. I want to drive mine to the best abilities safely. Thx
I saw a 30 Eliminator Eagle spin out at about 40-45mph from driver error and it ejected all 5 people. Luckily nobody was hurt.
