Glad you're ok, my buddy Bobby b was right near you and was texting me, my first questions was if you guys were out and swimming, and he said yes.

Skate - we were coming back from Navarre in the ICW at Mary Esther.

We launched and hit on the starboard side and were ejected before the boat did whatever it did: I have heard it rolled, it rolled three times, it cartwheeled, it went end over end. I dunno, but I'm glad I wasn't in it. Katie is really sore today, but the ER doc said it was going to be that way.

We watched it happen about 100 yards before you passed in front of us. Thank god both of you are ok.!!! We watched in horror as you flew out of the boat. That is one sickening feeling I don't want to experience again. What a great group of people that handled this accident.! Within 30 seconds the 36 spectre a couple jet skis and a couple other boats were controlling the situation . Once again thank god no one was hurt.!

We must have been just in front of you. We hit some big rollers there also. Glad your OK. Heck I'm sore today and I stayed in the boat. I can't imagine being ejected. What kind of life jackets were you guys wearing? Just wondering if you hit the boat as you where ejected. I've been wearing inflatables but am seriously considering Life Lines after this weekend.
