I hit a log two years ago, at about 40MPH. 8000.00 later! I was very lucky that was the only damage. Tom

Like MitchStellin said....

Plus, as skippers we always want to think that another driver screwed up, because then the logical conclusion is that we are safe, even though we do the same activity and are at the same risk.
It's human nature to want to blame the accident on something other than the "calculated" part of the risk.

Hi, My name is Mike and i am the owner of the 35 Flame that went down. !st off my wife is recovering nicely and other than a few aches and pains for me - all is well. NordicGary is a good friend and letting me reply to the situation. the boat was traveling no more than 35-40 mph on a left hand turn. I have no issues with Nordic boats, this was a very unfortunate accident that was in God's control. the log was not seen from surface view and it jacked the boat and sent my wife and I out the starboard side at least 100 ft. By divine intervention my wife and I are alive and safe which makes our son relieved.

thanks for everyones POSITIVE comments - even you Summer Obsession - (please don't assume driver error without facts)

Going to bed to rest and talk to my wife- be back before you know it!!!

Of course you know the name of the next boat has to be "Dam Flaming Logs". Just kidding - glad Beth will be OK and hopefully not too discouraged with boating. Of course you'll be at the lake this weekend right?

Default Hey Houseboy

You now know that you and the better looking one in your family have several friends at the lake who do care about you so don't let a little thing like this get you down and keep you off of the lake. You have too many friends to ride with while you are regrouping so come on back down. If you stay away too long, who will we make fun of?

mp,
Thanks for the update on the accident. I'm happy to hear you & your wife are going to be alright. Scary stuff! I know my biggest fear is hitting something just under the water and ripping off a drive. There's not much you can do but hold on.


halffast, 38Fountain & Marginmn,
Thanks for getting us the facts. I wish we knew the facts from some of the other recent accidents. It would put the end to all the speculations about bad boats and inexperienced drivers. People forget things happen that are truly just an accident.
Dan
