So it did NOT break in half.

Just tore off the deck when it flipped.

Not the boat's fault at all!

I'll delete my earlier post.

Hate it when stuff like this happens.

I hope all involved are OK.

Rumors and embelishment suck. First, it does not have 500s. Second, who knows WTF happened. And depending on what actually did happen, I think the boat is in pretty decent shape for the beating it took. I don't see an entire deck ripped off; just the back portion of the top deck which probably got ripped off my the engine hatch coming off.

Maybe it struck bottom when it rolled. 6 feet deep is not much at 75MPH.
