I was hoping it was a link to news about the accident... not a story about the "sweater" learning how to surf.....

In between all the other bull****, some facts did emerge in the other thread. I thought this was some definitive info:

It was rough and windy. The boat surprisingly is ok, besides it was upside down, lol. They pulled the motors, dash, and everything out of the boat last night.

It wasn't a barrel roll. It basically tipped over. He turned against a wave and it caught. The boat rolled over on its back.

Oh, and it's on video.

Does anyone have the video ? How does a 36 Foot Gladiator flip on Biscayne Bay ? For the most part the waves there are close together and max 4 footers. Unless he was on the outside and caught some swells I would think that boat should have been able to handle such conditions... Speed and driver error ?

Douuhh.. Sorry.. I corrected it... So GLH, you have a 42 Tiger right ? In a bay situation, waves close together does it ever feel like you are going to lose control ? Is it something that just happens all of a sudden with no warning ? Never been on a boat that big but my Power Play 25 never feels unpredictable on the bay no matter what the bay has to offer. Albeit, when it's really rought I'll try to keep it at a safe speed. I'm just curious.

Thanks Baja.

It was funny, I posted the facts to the accident 3-4 times and still people were asking for the facts afterward. I guess they didn't want the truth, only juicy rumors.
