No one is happy around here as this is the first incident of this kind to happen to any Sunsation and until we know all the facts, let’s keep the guys who got injured first and foremost in our thoughts. Once we can determine what happened, we’ll make a post on all the boards that have info regarding this.
Now that's a stand-up manufacturer, with concern for the sport and it's participants.

It was a generalization, let me rephrase that, the chain is an absolute diaster. The idiots pollute that place like no other I have been to. Im sure there are other places just as bad, but the chain ranks right up there.

Hope all get better.

Looks like 496's of some kind per the pictures.

Looks new...if it is .. then another low hour rig trashed... there goes our insurance...again...

What an unfortunate thing to happen. Hopefully all of the occupants of the boat will be OK......and the driver doesn't get another boat!
