Default Non stepped boat accident at Loto

Missouri Water patrol web site report

I found this on the Water Patrol's web site, Checkmate boat's aren't Stepped are they? I just thought it would show that it can happen to anyone.

"The operator was attempting a high speed turn when the boat turned too sharp and ejected the operator into the water. The boat continued and ran aground into the woods approximately 90 feet"


WOW! 90 feet into the woods!!! Wonder if theres anything left of the boat!?!?

Default Total loss

Says it right in the report, "Total Loss"

Many Checkmates are OB's and may not have lanyards.
Thankfully no one hurt according to report. Insurance may not pay due to owner negligence.

Explain to me exactly what a stepped boat is and I'll tell you whether or not they are

Good try Grand-ma!! You almost had it!!68 year old Female Water Ski accident

Cindy, A Stepped Boat usually has a complete step across the entire (Or almost entire) running surface of the Hull. For instance the "Camo Toon" does not have one! Yet the new Fountains, and Cigarette's do!

The Check ZT's ARE stepped. The Convincor's are non-stepped.
