    Excellent. Captain just looks like his whole.body goes limp

    I don’t know how seriously they were hurt but the woman up front on the left braced here self early on. She got lucky too because she could have broken her jaw or cheek if she had slammed into the window frame harder.

    As a former owner of a go-fast (clocked at 87 mph during a poker run on the St Lawrence River), with experience on Lake Ontario... and then a 22ft cc going in and out of Jupiter inlet when we lived in FL.... Yes, there are plenty of dipshits that have money and think they can "drive" a boat.... hell just watch the vids of them backing the trailer at the ramp.....

    But one of the most memorable times on a boat, we rented a houseboat and toured the St Johns River in FL for two weeks.... towed the 81ft aluminum hunting boat behind, and had the time of our lives.....

    Looks like the chick in the middle broke a nail @ 1:30 into the video. The horror of it all...

    This thread title had me worried someone was about to rail on some immigrants. Been in boats most my life and now mostly just at Deepcreek. Believe me the ignorance comes in all boat types and speeds. We use the ski boat very early or late and use the pontoon as a floating beach anchored off to the side.

    On Deep Creek, my bass boat was back at the dock no later than 0930-1000. That's when all the "pleasure boaters" cut loose.

    I boated on Deep Creek Lake for close to 20 years (1996-2015). I miss that place badly. I miss my Cobalt as well. Enjoy.

    You can learn a lot from other people's mistakes, especially dumb ar$es.

    Often at lunch I watch a couple boat channels that show boats going through inlets and the stupid stuff people do.
    Here is one.
    I own or have owned a variety of watercraft in the past 20 years but NEVER wanted a muscle boat.
    Its like how BMW owners go to a special seminar to be an A-hole driver, Muscle boaters often go to a seminar on how to be a dumb Arse



    Watch the guy at 4:45 and how he handles the little boat and the following seas perfectly.
    Even the guy right after him in the Intrepid, is not thinking about impressing someone with speed and handles his throttle correctly

    What's the difference between a porcupine and a BMW? The porcupine has its pricks on the outside.

    I know a couple go-fast boaters that are great folks. Would fit right in over here on MDS. But yes, plenty of rich D bags that get these fast boats just to be reckless.

    Ever been 100mph on the bay? Bring a change of pants.
    Fastest I've been on water is probably about 35mph.

    I have practically loaded my pants many moons ago when a coworker took me for a drive in his kit car one night. I forget what kind of kit it was, but running a blown small block chevy at around 780hp at the wheels and around 2500lbs.

    Anyway, he opened it up on little patuxent parkway around 2am or so which I was not expecting. Took a turn I've gone somewhat above the speed limit in the past and it is a yawner (I rarely speed more than your typical 5-7 over. Sure, I've been young, in serious hurries, etc. and done more than that. I once bounced off the speed limiter in my Mazda 3 for about 10 minutes driving to a wedding I was late to almost 20 years ago).

    It is NOT a yawner accelerating flat out and probably going 130mph by the time you get to the "gentle curve". He did haul it back right afterwards, but dayum.

    I prefer a broad reach on West River in front of a cold front and line of T-storms, flat water, Hobie 16 double trapeeze, going 26+kts, 9 ft rooster tails of the rudders that are humming and on the very edge of disaster, (ie pitchpolling at 26 kts on a trapeeze is like going 26 to 0 in 1 second.). Going almost twice as fast in my Sea Hawk on flat water is fun but does not have quite the same thrill factor. Going only 10kts in a 3-4' Bay chop in the Hawk will beat the crap out of your back but is very comfortable at trolling speeds. Whatever makes your boat float. :-)
    IMHO, I prefer going fast on sailboats and hobies in some strong winds on a trapeeze are for sure a TON of fun (my FIL has one).

    I've always loved sailing and powerboating, just depends on what mood im in. Ive been 100 on the bay, its quite exhilarating but having to hold on for dear life and wear earplugs the whole time gets old after a bit. Its like jet skis, fun in small doses.

    My wife and I did a back-country snowmobile trip when we were skiing in Colorado one year. It was absolutely stunning landscapes, but the noise ruined it for me. I'd much rather ski, and just hear the sound of my skis on the snow.

    I had 2. A 25ft Active Thunder that ran 85mph. Then sold that for a 31 foot Cigarette Bullet that would top out at 70. Loved them, but need to know how to run them for sure. I ran a friends 42x for him. Went up to 110 and still had room to go. He had zero experience in that kind of boat and I don't think he runs it to this day. He got something smaller and slower and been out on that. I did love the fast, but my next is going to be a cruiser with a head I can stand up in lol

    Saturday night I was at Bike Week at OC, crew of us eating outside at a bayside waterfront restaurant with jet ski/boat rental place next door.

    Pontoon boat rolls in, Im watching an employee gesturing to the boat filled with 10 or so people he'll dock the boat. He hops aboard. We're sorta gawking at this since the renters were having trouble what to do before the guy hopped aboard.

    Employee proceeds to ram into the the dock infront of us, about 15 feet away. Loudest wood creeking noise ever as he got it wedged under the wood and reversed. Like a 14-18 inch dent above the water line.

    For whatever reason this place parks that pontoon boat there and the people get off it and walk through the outside restaurant seating back to the rental place

    Funniest shit I've seen a while, and the look on the people's faces in the boat were priceless.

    There is a new vid with two people getting ejected from an airborne inverted speed boat, but I can't get that to post.

    I did find this oldie...
    FF to about 2 mins for the money shot.
    I'm not seeing much fun with this...


    ...guy in the blue that caves his face in on the side of the boat 3x

    :banghead:
