    Horrible news. I was out there until about 3 p.m. and saw a few high speed boats. I hate hearing this stuff. Please wear your life vests! http://www.kcra.com/news/16002491/detail.html

    BillDoe called me this morning, apparently the guy who lived is a friend of his. I didn't get a lot of solid info, just that the boat may have caught an edge and barrel rolled. He said the guy remembers seeing the boat go down like a rock, nose up, with the bow split (deck separated from the hull). But this is all third hand info. Don't count on the accuracy. Hopefully Bill will fill us in with better information.

    I removed the pic of the boat out of respect to those affected.

    May God bless family and friends.

    Yes that was a good friend of mines boat and the passenger i knew also . they were out doing 60-70 mph hot passes and was doing a long wide turn at 45-55 mph and caught a wave as he was turning and cought the chine and barrel rolled the boat . my buddy got tossed from the boat and not sure what happen to the passener if he went down with the boat or if the boat hit him as it was barrel rolling . all i know is my buddy was shook up really bad losing his Best friend and business partner . we were out last weekend at CFW and seemed like the boat was running the best it has so far and was a good weekend for both of us getting some testing done on mine and dialing his in alil better ... some of you might know him we were at Putah Creek last Nov. he has the green with purple flames Wright boat with the massive stereo in the back seat . this boat was his new boat he was building a Blower motor for and was just running this engine till his blower set up was done .. the boat that wrecked was a 77 Riviera v-drive . kinda a wierd bottom to the boat its like a v-hull with about a 1 foot wide flat spot down the center of the boat .. never seen a v-drive like it before ... anyway all i can say is WEAR YOUR DAMN LIFEVEST . he might have been saved if he was wearing one !!!!
    very sad day RIP Tony .
