Looks like they also had the sense to turn the engine off before the snorkel went under.

I thought there was only 1 bloke in it - couldn't believe it when the other one popped up!!!

Wonder what lives in those swamps since Chernobyl???

You ever tried getting out of a 4-point harness fast when you can't see? Something tells me they got out as fast as they could...

yes i have. i crashed my whitewater jet boat in the world championships 5 years ago. it split in half and went to the bottom. in the rapids! i couldn't see, i was dizzy from the boat flipping at 80mph, had a 2 inch peice of my visor stuck into my eyball and what do you know... i clicked that button REALLY fast.

i have the crash on video. some guy caught it on tape and sold it to fox sports, travel channel, espn etc. i have to convert it from vhs to disc though.

well all is healed now except for some scars and one eye ever so slightly lower than the other. i had double vision for six months! well mostly when i had a beer or two. really

codders you nailed it. my son was born 18 days after that and things have calmed down quite a bit for me.

i'll get it converted soon and put it on here.
