Looks to me like Priestley had no business being on that race course,,, UNLESS,, he had a mechanical problem..

some very cool stuff though..

I don't think Jason Priestly belongs behind the wheel of anything beyond a lawn tractor! Every time you turn around he's smashing into something, be it boats, cars or whatever...

A lawn tractor might even be a stretch.

Priestly would still be dangerous in a wheelchair.

Chris, it was a pretty nasty stuff. The water probably grabbed a hold of the deck joint and ripped the deck off. This is one disadvantage of the typical 'shoebox' hull/deck joint.

That Jason Priestley thing looked to me like the throttleman's fault. Looked to me that he was trying to turn but there was no way it would bite at that speed.
