This is correct in Spec classes, however in this boats case it is labeled as P3 which is a bracketed class with a breakout speed of 95... Anything goes in these classes minus the GPS, no minimum weight

Good part is no one was hurt, you can always fix the boat.

Just why I would never lift my boats that way. I don't trust anything.

Its a wake up call for all racers and crew !!!!! The crane area is a hazard zone and needs to be respected period. To many people just walking around and under boats. I'm shocked this has not happened before. To many times I see people walking under a lifted boat and wonder why they feel so safe. The joke IMO is that the rule is no one is aloud in the crane area with open toe shoes. The crane area is probably just as dangerous as the live race course. Show this footage at the drivers meeting before the next couple races.
