yeah this thing has been beat'n to death! someone asked me the other day what boat would you buy right now...not many come to mind!...the 36 gladiator is one of them! VERY cool boat! this sport and or hobby is filled with egos...ask 1000 men if they are good at driving and good at sex...any takers what the percentages would be!?...modern day equipment FAR exceeds the ability of those that buy it....be it cars, motorcycles, BOATS, and especially EGOS. sport-bike crashes are WAY up...their design must have a flaw...could NEVER be the people operating them???

i love this!:"when to let off - ALWAYS leaning towards sooner rather than later"....like i said, everyone knows...chop the throttles w/poor timing and guess what happens....ever hear of bow steer???...not to mention most boats are utilizing BIG wheels these days with 4, 5! and 6!blades...

just because the equipment is capable, dosn't mean you are...

32Fever,

Yes, that's what I have heard as well. It can be a perpetual, never ending sickness---right? Well, I've been whipped before and I suppose another lickin' isn't going to make much difference.

And if you dont believe Joe here...call your insurance agent and get the details on some of the accidents.....you will be surprised at some of the circumstances surrounding them.......

I guess you never know when or were it will happen.

FYI:
Most stepped hulls flip when the driver lets off going into a turn. Also, I heard about the St. Joe incident from someone who was up there and saw a boat towed in upside down (he didn't mention if the bottom/top was stepped or not)
