I hope all are ok. This is one hell of a bad stretch for performance boaters and stepped hulls in general.

Not to sound crude but somehow we need to step up and find away to put a stop to this before the government decides that they will stop it for us!
The other big problem is going to be insurance we will not be able to get it or not be able to afford it! I am sure there were wrecks before everyone was connected like on the net like this and we did not hear about them but this has been a horrible year already in our small performance world.
Wether or not it is driver error, equipment failure or whatever we need to look into these incidents and find ways to improve our eqipment or what ever else needs to be done before we are not allowed to run boats at speed anymore!

I AGREE BAJABOAT!!!!!!!!! How the hell do you flip these boats in bays and lakes? These people most be new to the sport and think they can turn there boat like there car!!! If your doin it right you really have to have your head up your joass to screw up boats of this size in bays or lakes. If it's equip. failure then its my bad,but the accidents I've seen so far are all operator error and lack of knowledge. Like Baja says someone is going to start governing this sport through politics.
