Default Yves Belanger talks about his EPIC run off of Miami in Razz

Looks like Yves sat down and talked about the infamous day he ran Razz out of Fort Apache. In my opinion one of the coolest and jaw dropping offshore videos ever made. Get chills watching it every time. Great audio in the original too.

anyway, cool he sat down for some
story time. 😁

Wow,can't believe they didn't interview Sunkin for his "ejection" thoughts on this type of boating. That guy knows 2 things: Apaches AND Ejections!

Cool video for sure, thanks for posting it Tank!

On a side note, this boat got stripped in LOTO and was sold as a project. Did it ever get re-assembled?

I saw it out there stripped at pbc years ago. Sad to see it in that condition.

Yes, it’s getting a rebuild.
Saw it on a Facebook page, a couple of ‘teasers’, so we know it’s true. The owner is keeping quiet but I’m sure it’ll be shown off when finished.

I tried to look this guy up but couldn't find much other than he owns a truck dealership, is there anything else he's involved in?
