Another one? Wow.

I also saw where another Skater flipped or rolled during a "race" in the BVI last week.

Lake lice SUCK I mean S U C K

Dodging lake lice in my home lake now requires me to have spotters. Those things should be regulated. They are marketed and sold to as many beer guzzling testosterone spewing nut cases they can and only think about their RIGHTS to drive anyway anywhere and in front of anyone....Rights that us go fast boat owners are now forced to pay attention too.

I feel very sorry for the Skater group.

That was some pretty rough stuff and he came around a cross wind corner around an island. Crap situation but one that any cat has to be careful of in those area's.

Hope all is well in this situation and no lives lost or injured bad.
