Aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh that would be #1 also it was it's first race and its first time in the water except for 20 minutes the day before........Also I gotta get this dig in....we had to start 100 yards behind the fleet because they said Dick hadn't raced a boat since the dinosaurs roamed the earth and at the first turn it was Treadwell in the lead with us and the other Dick Simon F2 boat (Formula) side by side for second place...not bad for out of the box.......I do have an on board from Tread's boat that shows it in real time pretty incredible....Sean

The best part is the audio:
<Treadwell>
"Jesus! Did you see that! That Stinson's a real moron! He'll never be in a boat with me!"

1 1/2 years later in Key West, Stinson teams up with Treadwell. The boat crashes.

(Just the facts, ma'am.)

hmmm my guess is when you took the turn there was a bit of a roller going sideways, maybe even form the boat in front.

the boat you were in possibly caught an outside edge because of the rolling wave and threw it to the outside edge, but the boat luckily didnt hook maybe even the edge it caugh wasnt even the outside edge maybe it was possbily an edge on the step hull?

pretty crazy few seconds that must have been.

sort of like this....

Damn, I can't believe that I didn't take any flack for the controlled slide comment!!!!

The reality of it is that at no time from the second picture till it landed back on its bottom did anyone have control of that boat. But during that ride all I can remember is that it was an incredibily long couple of seconds until I hit the water and then everything come back to real time......Wouldn't really recommend trying it though.
