Is that boat brand new. I think I remember seeing it on the Chain last year a few times.

Not everyone on the Chain is an ******* Woody. Many of us have beautiful offshore boats, are respectful boaters and enjoy the privilege of being hit the water any day in our backyard. I think you'd be suprised at some of the hardware up here now. It's actually starting to clean up quite a bit, DNR and Police are out in force.
Ofcourse everyoe on the chain is not an idiot, by any stretch of the imagination, you know this, cmon now. The chain is a literal cluster when its 90 degrees and you have a hand full of idiots from blarneys island, just buck wild out there. Shallow+drunk fools+2000 boats=No chain for me.

Woody, we are glad you are not boating on the chain with your obvious hatred of the boaters there. It is a large body of water that is shallow in places. My 35' does just fine.

The lower river where that crash happened is a 30mph 90 degree corner. He told the tow company he tried taking it at 70 mph. He rolled it and it hydrauliced the deck off.

OK, I don't know anything about snowmobiles. You can ride a snowmobile on water that is deep enough for a '32 boat to run?

Next question... Why is the boat following the SNOWMOBILE that closely?

sleds will tread water if you keep the track speed up, pretty much WFO.

oh yea, keeping your wieght in the right place is critical. It's officially called watercross. We have an event on an inland pond here every July...draws pretty big.
