Cool

Its got a number on the bow, I think its a ski race boat (was). If you look real close you can see the fine line where they cut off the beak to make it a 39 footer. Theres a lot of ski racers in Nor Cal. I think I know the owner but I'm going to make a call before I mention a name...

Well, what do you expect - put the throttles on the wrong side of the wheel, the poor guy is bound to get disoriented!

50-60 at night is Darwin at work, IMHO. Guy is lucky he didn't kill himself or someone else.

Glad no one was hurt. Too fast at night.

He may of had less damage if he had Volvos.

Glad to hear nobody was injured.
Lucky it didnt roll...
I would think 50-60 would have gotten him further along that bank. By the look of it the boat stopped within 50 feet or so.
