[QUOTE=Nick Hearne;548183]

dug in & pulled the boat over 90% I fell out & thought it was going to go full turtle!! But luckily kill cord did its job & boat just stopped & righted its self, leaving the girl left in the boat wondering what the hell that was all about! I now use a bridle in the SR4!


same happened to me using ski pole (didnt get throw out thou) scared the sh#te out of me!!! lesson learnt the hard way that day NEVER open the throttle when the inflatable has no rider
