Actually.......as much as you are annoying...... your fundamental question about the relative safety of steps is a valid one......

Of course I hate the damn things myself..........

The amazing thing here is your uncanny ability to galvanize people against you.........

Weather its too much speed for the conditions or what ever, if your in control of your vessel then your chances of catastrophe are much less.At higher speed one can loose control, in anything, it has nothing to do with steps or hull design.

Just my 2cents
I'm in Corrado's corner on this one. Though I am no expert on hull design, I'd say by definition that if you flip or spin a boat when nothing broke to cause it, it is definetly driver error. Not knowing the limits of the boat is driver error. Letting a huge wake sneak up on you is driver error.

...And you've made your point at least 18 times. Enough already.

Secondly, perhaps you should examine those words more carefuly and listen to the meaning....before spouting your drivel.

For only being here 3 months, you sure have no short supply of advice for a board full of veterans and long-time members.

I'm done...please continue the bi-polar conversations with yourself.

I'd swear I've heard your crap before. I wonder who has been reincarnated.

Okay then..............

LPA2106 has survived the OSO hazing procedure.......

And has asked a question..........

Let's switch gears and try to answer it..........

Do steps and their inherent instability cause wrecks....... or do people's inability to control the inherent instability of steps cause wrecks?

T2x.............

I should be flattered that you're using my article to bolster your point.......but I'm not.

There is a time and place for everything.....this thread is neither with serious injuries involved.

LPA...start another thread if you wish to have this debate. Our thoughts and good wishes should be with those involved with this threads topic........
