I'll have to look for pictures, dont think i have them, but when I hooked coming off of a wave on the ole Mini Hawk, the motor came off! It was dangling under water still hooked up. Boat started to sink also!

Or recent this year, when the oil to gas ratio was bad, and the motor locked up and ruined it.

06 Trailblazer SS 8040 miles. Tune and intake only. Ran consistent [email protected] 102. Best of [email protected] 104. Rwd #6 connection rod bolts were known to back out. Video is 3rd run of the night with drag radials. Really needed a converter..ie ran much better on stocks.

Last video is all 3 runs of the night from rear camera and friend in the stands..

After looking at this thread, I'm asking myself why I bought a boat?

because you must love the sun, water, loud engines, and bikinis with the option of a icy cold beverage and hopefully no idiots around you for the entire day
