I was at the lake. I do know that I saw two woman and two men head out of Humbug before it happened. So there were four on board.

I am no expert, but when you have four outboard promax 300's on the back of a cat, it sound like alot of wieght all the way at the back of the boat. Maybe a good chance to blow over. I think those boat's in general are pretty light.

I hope all will be well with them. It was an awsome boat

they were going at a speed of 100 and started to turn the boat.... which barrel rolled.
gentlemen driving was not the owner of the boat.
one gentlemen had teeth removed from nasal cavity ...
the other gentlemen not sure on status...
one of the females in the back.. had a bone in her leg broken...
the other passenger.. not sure on status.
there were no deaths...

boat is believed to still be in lake.

I am going by second party information. If I am not accurate please correct me.

I would also like to include I am glad to hear no deaths and I wish
everyone a quick recovery.


A thought away from this accident.......

I am not an expert here people, but ....
If your participating in a sport that has the
the factors of life and death riding on your hands of not only yourself but others...
You need to think twice before exceeding your limits.
Be honest with yourself's about
what you can and can not handle .... there is nothing to prove.
Waters are way to unpredictable to take chances.
With the big power & set ups being produced today...it is something that needs to be
a addressed EVERY time you're out on the water.

A quick recovery to all...

This is not good people. Its only a matter of time before the "Holier-than-thou's" will be wanting restrictions. This is the 4th or 5th crash I've read about this year

More info about Lake Pleasant crash. 35' Motion with 4 outboards rolled over while cornering. There were 5 passengers on board and all 5 did sustain injuries, some minor to more serious, however none are life threatening. It is believed to have been driver error or mechanical failure that caused the roll over, as drugs and alcohol were not a factor. Thankfully everyone on board will recover.

I think that it is time for everyone to mellow out a bit and slow down. It's also probably a good time to start think about getting your orders into lifeline for some vests. Boat safe people, summer is barely getting started.

Glad to hear that everyone will be ok.
Is it just me, or has there been post along these lines every Monday since the season started this year?

I think nobody should take passengers at that speed, except maybe one experienced high performance boater. Many of the passengers have no idea how bad things can go how fast. Many of them think of it as a ride at Disney, where nothing can go wrong. We've had several examples this year that that isn't the case. Happy to hear they all will have a chance to rethink the decision on going that fast again, many don't have that choice after a wreck at those speeds.
