Another story from the Daily Mail..

Shocking video captures moment boat crashes on Missouri lake sending family flying | Mail Online

Nicht so gut.

Judging by the throttle set up and the type of vessel I suspect they were going preeety fast at the time.

Didn't look like a whole lot of fun (at least for the passengers) before they hit the wake, either.

That's going to hurt. Probably end up with the same injuries you'd expect after a car crash. Hope no one was seriously hurt. What's the driver doing with the throttle? Looks like he was going way too fast in the first place.
Is that with or without VAT?

Good thing they did not barel roll the boat, the speed looks very high. The driver is very active with his left hand, is it throttle control?
fun on a boat is inversely proportional to size...sort of anyway

If it is the throttle looks like something broke. He moves it back and forward but it seems like it has no affect on the boat at all
If you don't like my opinion, I have others.

The guy helming is a goon. The wake, or whatever he hit to cause the boat to react the way it did, didn't appear by magic. He was either not observing, or not suffciently experienced to deal with the situation as it occurred.
It looks as if he took wake on the beam from a boat ahead of him travelling in the same direction. If he had both V8s at WOT and the Fountain trimmed out, the combination would be pretty violent.

Shit driving, never the less.
