[QUOTE=X-Rated30;3478005]It rolled. We were ejected. We are fine. Sore but fine. I just want to say I have the best friends ever. I want to thank everyone that took care of Katie. She is ok and we are back at the house. There are too many people to thank, but I will get to that soon.

Does anyone even know if that cruiser that threw the wake stopped?[/

Don't mean to upset. How bad is the boat?

Sounds like ya'll were very lucky and the people around did awesome.

I'm here with Bobby B and Steve, the ones that jumped in after the accident to help, the boat (55' SeaRay) that threw the wake never stopped!!!

Glad to hear everyone is Ok, and it sounds like there were good people there that took control and handled the situation well. "36 Specter and a couple of jet ski's took control".

Far too often in a situation like that everyone panics and freaks out and just makes things worse.

Wishing all involved a speedy recovery.

Damn. Can't upload pics from an iPad? That sucks. Boat is pretty banged up, but hell, it did roll. Jay Pillini built a tough boat. Last night I did what I do to all of my exes - I kissed her on the nose and said, "We had some good times".

Kimmer - I don't even remember anyone being in the water with us. I was pretty dazed, but tell them thanks.

The gentleman in the 36 Spectre is a good friend of mine. He was in some boat wrecks back when he raced.

Thanks for all your well wishes.

Sorry you had an accident! That sucks. Why would the cruiser stop? How far away were they? Big boats throw off big wakes....and you can hit them 1/4 mile away and behind them.....so how would they even know there was a problem? Just trying to understand, and glad everyone survivied.
