My theory:

If you were turning to Port, and broke the Port skeg, I could see this breaking and causing the spin, as the most side force was being applied to the Port skeg, given boat lean in corners, and the SB skeg, was some what lifted, in 'thinner' water. In other words, in a to-Port turn, the boat is relying on the Port skeg moreso, (twin application).

If you were turning to Port, and broke the SB skeg, I would have to say the the spin was caused by the boat coming loose first, and as the boat settled back into the water, the SB skeg would have 'slapped' the water with great force, causing it to snap, (even as far up as in the thin part of the bullet case). Even when the boat settled back into the water after a to-Port spin, nevermind which way the boat may have been leaning as the transom re-entered the water, more force would be applied to the SB skeg. The SB skeg is hanging out farther in a to-Port spin, and the water would have been 'softened' for the Port skeg's re-entry, by either the transom/hull, or the (then breaking) SB skeg.

Exact opposite if the spin was done while turning toward SB.

Does my thinking make sense?

I KNOW no Active Thunder rolled over! Sorry for the confusion everyone! I wanted to know the TRUTH about my above theory on why the AR Donzi spun last year. See my quote above. Several of us want Joey to come out with the details.

Sorry Pat & everyone. Hell, I am even shopping for an AT.

This thread basically came to fruition by dedective analysis because Joey was so "associated" via the Audacity boat, that it is believed the rumor started, thinking Audacity actually spun or rolled. Again, see the first post on this page. That is what we want the truth about.

Nort, you could at least change the thread title to the correct boat brand in question.

DONZI, not ACTIVE THUNDER.
