The boat "hooks" -- the bow digs in and the boat swaps ends really quickly! It stops, but the people keep on going.

The boat mounted camera does make it look really weird because you don't get any feel for the violence of the event. It just looks like they are plucked out by an invisible hand

It's near enough!

2 weeks ago we had the Belgian offshore challenge. From the almost 45 ribís participating, 5 persons were ejected from there rib. All of them were sitting in bucket seats. One got even ejected from a bobsled console. We were happy we had bolster seats!

Imagine it then, at 94mph, which is what that boat was doing as it began to slow for the turn. They estimated they were doing 70 when it hooked.

That's stepped bottoms for you (a bad example)

Sometimes I find you don't have much say in the matter. When you want to sit you end up standing and when you want to stand you end up sitting. Something like that!

Yeah, and you will always leave the seat in the wrong position, whatever you do. Atleast that is what the missus tells me.
