    Default 360 degree spin....

    I'm very much a novice in the world of boating, but I've done plenty of 180's in my boat.
    I'm getting pretty good at the ol' "Hamilton stop", or whatever ya' call it...

    Got a 360 today that was pretty fun.

    Managed to break my seat in the process..hehe.
    Happens at about 3:10 in this vid.

    Enjoy! I did.

    Not too sure. I'm guessing 35-40ish.


    Here's a pic of the boat.

    My Hawaiian is EXTREMELY stable on the water.
    It's like a 12 degree V and nearly flat from the drivers seat back. Great hull!

    You need to get someone to film that from shore.

    I am trying to figure out what camera to get to do that very thing. Any suggestions? I have a GoPro onboard, but you can't zoom in with it, so it's only good on the boat.

    Are you trying to spin on purpose?

    If so does that thing have a rev limiter on it?

    Nope, that was not intentional, and no, I don't have a limiter.
    I know I need one.

    I see a serious problem here with this whole thing. It's one thing to do the 360 as a well experience driver, on purpose and wearing the proper safety gear. Being that you are a novice, I don't think you realize the possible outcomes of accidently doing this stunt.
    About 10 years a go a guy was doing that same thing and he actually flipped the boat. Sad thing is his wife was ridding with him and when the boat flipped she went in the water. The boat rolled over her and she ended up under the bow. She went down with the boat.
    It might look cool on Youtube, however the reality of it is that this happend accidentally....why??
