i think lucky for him the fuel tank eventualy slid to the back making the boat turn even tighter ,if you look when he first goes in the water the fuel tank was about in the middle of the boat then after a couple of turns it slides to the transom ,,,,,only f..king glad i always use a kill cord , the other boaters dident seem to be all that concerned about him .
