Glad every one is ok, I truly believe that had they not been wearing life jackets this would have had a different outcome.

Props spinning in or out ? Boat wake, helm over asking for trouble.

Glad to hear all are ok. I had a chance to see that boat in Miami last year. Beautiful piece.

Glad to hear that everyone is OK, but what caused the roll over?

Default Something smells fishy here??

How did this thread die so quick? Especially with no answers, pics etc. Am I logged into OSO or some other site?

First I am very glad to here everyone is ok, especially after the events of key west. If I was one of the people in the Orange DCB I would be REALLY thankful I was alive right now.

But why is this rollover such a secret? No pictures, no answers, etc. Any other boat accident and OSO blows up (especially when there are no deaths). Crazy speculation starts flying, pics pop up, rumors spread, etc. I am not saying that is what I want but I would expect a little more than what is being posted!

Honestly theres probably no answer that will make me gain the respect I lost for the DCB 35, unless the news reports change. Without alcohol, collision, excessive speed, there is no reason a boat like that should crash at such a low speed on mild water. Especially such a well respected, half million dollar boat, thats rigged with the best and strongest parts etc.

I would be furious if I owned a boat like that and flipped it. Chit I would be pissed if I owned a bayliner and it flipped pulling the kids on the tubes at 17mph!

So do bugatti veryons, corvette ZR1's, and viper ACR's spin out when only driving at 55 and hitting a freeway expansion joint?

Seriously??? WTF?
