I talked with an off duty officer yesterday afternoon who said that the two guys were believed to have been in the cabin and the girl driving. No one is sure at this time. They all were believed to have been drinking, but this is not conclusive until the blood test come back. He also said that one of the men had to be revived. They did not expect him to live. As of this morning, I believe he is still hanging on. I have not heard different.

Um, I'm not sure if you've looked closely at the New Baja 20 Outlaw or not but there is NO cabin at all. Just FYI

If I remember correctly, the little Glastron made a 115' long flight from end of ramp to first splash.

Takeoff speed was 56 mph, I believe.
135 Evinrude on a GT150 Glastron with black plastic hull strips to keep it level on the ramp and center-mounted steering wheel and seat.

100 practice runs were made, most of them using the ramp in open water before attaching it to the land.

Don't even want to think about why the two GUYS were in the cabin together.
