Default Kook flipped boat?

I just heard that Kook wrecked his sunsation this past weekend on the upper chesapeake. He was racing up and down the river with some people on board and lost control and flipped the boat. I heard one person ended up in the cabin and was trapped. I don't think anyone died but are in bad shape. I thought that boat looked a little small for that kind of power and speed and inexperience. Hopefully everyone will be allright

Man I hope thats not the case. I hope everybody will recover fully if it is the case. He posted a topic earlier and said that during testing the boat would chine walk badly and that Bruce refused to deliver the boat untill that was worked out. I think they changed drive ratios and props to calm it down.

Oh my!

Dude, I hope everybody is okay! Is this the new boat he just got back from the long delay(Bruce)? Best wishes, kook!

I wish a quick recovery for all!

I really hope this is not true or not as bad as it sounds. Ike I'm not questioning your veracity, just hoping for the best.

Guys, please remove your comments about too much power and inexperience until all the details are known. This could be unrelated, and it is not kosher. He damn well did not do it on purpose. Please, before this turns ugly for kook, Bruce, or Dave.

I hope it's not true, but if it is I hope everyone is OK. I can't remember, what size engine did he put in it and what was the horsepower? Wasn't it a 25'?
