Post says while making high speed sharp turn according to a witness . I've seen boats with step bottoms spin out in turns at races many times when being pushed hard . Sad to see

Sorry to see that. Glad to hear everyone is going to be ok. Its usually driver error but some step boats you just cant turn hard.

It's always sad to see a situation like this.You really have to be careful who you let drive your boat. Bottom line is that everyone is ok.

This was our boat. Thankfully everyone is ok. The boat on the other hand did not fair as well. The boat was not traveling at a high rate of speed. The damage shows there isnt much glass damage. The drives are still almost straight. The boat had slowed down to make a slight left turn, it started to slide and the caught and barrel rolled. Estimated speed is around 50. The occupants stated afterwards that there may have been an isssue with the steering. I wil keep everyone posted and thanks for the kind words. Its just glass and cann be replaced where our lives cant.
