Click the pause right at 22 seconds and tell me that wouldnt have been a blow over if he had a hair more speed.

Okay, an incremental increase in speed will not cause this boat to blow over. How much would it take to accomplish this is not possible to speculate, but I doubt that the boat has enough speed in it to make it blow over. The water it is landing back on is flat and there appears to be no severe winds to create any handling problems.

Other than the wake jump, it looks like the typical 28 Skater running. There are quite a few 28s Skaters that run over 120 and they have not blown over, so a run at some 80-90 is not nearly enough to blow the boat over.

To say a bit more speed would cause this boat to blow over seems a bit strong to say the least.

Boatless - My friend, you couldn't be further from the truth. You DO NOT know of what you speak. I speak from the experience of a blow over in a 28' Skater.. and I guarrantee that a 28' skater with 300s will blow over at those speeds and in those conditions. This is a guarrantee from somebody who has experienced a blow over. Why do you people who think you know it all act like you are the masters of the universe and come on like you are the authiority on this subject. This really frosts my butt. On this subject, you know sh*t!
