Default Powerplay Dan's Picture Stash

Here is a Picture from the Still Crazy wreck (38 aluminium Cougar)in Key west back in the 80s picture 1 the boat is just now coming to the surface. It reportedly dove at @ 100 striking the Sea Floor.

The story I heard was the rear fuel tank was damaged and they were running off the foreward tanks in the "Tin" cougar cats the fuel was in fuel cells in the wing.

It's happened a few times. They drive them right to the bottom and bounce off.

That's a trip and major stuff!

I remember "Heart Beat" the fountain. It stuffed & ran right into the bottom (30 feet) and had severe impact damage to the bow.
The crew as I remember had moderate injuries from slamming into the dash.
