WOW What happened? Was it a big roller wave or did you punch it hard or both? Was the boat damaged? and did you get hurt?
Boat was a total loss, the entire right sponson was gone from the stringer out. Yes it hurt, but only for a few days:D

the boat didn't come back under you...It twisted and rolled over...Good reason to buy a cat, that never would have happened to a cat. Glad you stepped away from inboard hot rods ! Glad you are still with us...:)
Amen brutha, only ................it was a cat.......or a Texas Performance tunnel to be more precise. Glad to be here:D

Know the feeling, hit a roller at 86MPH 8 years ago doing a radar run for the gang in a 18 foot v-drive flat, wind took it, just about blew over, came down sideways, blew the side of the boat out and the water came through and ripped the whole top of the boat off from the passenger seat back.............. total loss............ luckily, threw me into the passenger side just ahead where the water came through.................... another chapter of "And They Walked Away"...................

What about the days befor the pop off valve. That motor let loose, it was going. Which way, no one knew. I was sitting in the cove at firebird, west side of the track just past the 1/4. Freaking boats would head right for me. I recall one making it right up to the shore line. From that piont on I would stage the tow boat "behind" the rope.

While running the SKI divisonals In Dayton, Ohio in the 60's. Iwas driving a 16 ft Patterson the SK 165 Torgre and rolled over on and drove my head thru the deck. Pushed me down to the bottom lived to run again. The patterson was wood with glass, hairy but fast.

Hullshots crash

I was in the cove getting to make a run when a baby blue runner bottom launched made it a liitle ways and then a big ass splash...I can remember years later don with a hydro. You sure went down hill, swapped a flat for a hydro and then got rid of the v-drive altogether...:D:)hand
