What amazes me is how the tree could penetrate the hull at such an oblique angle... I would have thought the boat would have been deflected.....

Unfrigginbelievable!...

Fortunately, I'm glad no one was hurt.

This whole scenario just reeks, though. The parts of the puzzle just aren't adding up. Calm waters, huge boat, tab down?(give me a break, they don't move that fast...)

You're all right on with the lanyard...this never would have happened.

Get ready for more insurance reaming. Thanks.

When that happens, they just hit the rev-limiters.

That has got to be the most expensive tree stand in history If that was in OK, they would have left the boat there and attatched a ladder so they could get to the top and shoot deer.
