Tied up in cove on driver side about 75 yards from when he lifts off and from two orange bouy bags

Never seen a crash that bad that close nor 244MPH that close. Wow

Re: Off topic ii

with these type of boats they run two guys

 

one is the driver and one is the throttle man

 

as of right now both are alive

 

one basically walked away, he is at local lake hospitial and is doing alright

 

the other was messed up pretty good, said his helment came off and he broke away from his harness, we was basically in a coma all night and this AM they were able to wake him and he is responsive but still in serious/critical condition, hes in COMO

 

to give you an idea, that boat is about 46 foot long or so, and weights in around 8 ton or so, and when it flew it was 50ft plus in the air

 

heres a link to more pics, and of course there are about 8-10 more videos from different angles

 

FYI, boats make a funny sound when the go flying by, literally

He didn't make it. Bad deal but part of going 200MPH on the water, it happens
