What a nob - deserved it!!!

People like that just do not deserve that much luck - then you get some poor kid who falls out of a boat and gets killed.

Jesus he swam after the thing as well! It looks like it may have actually gone over him when it hit the back of the cruiser.

The actual SIB and engine is exactly the same as one I have recently brought, I have a funny feeling it is the actual SIB in the video, the engine has no kill cord on it. One is being fitted before the SIB is used.
