after our hunt yesterday at Rex Hancock, about 1/2 way back to the ramp, saw the GW towing a 15 foot boat, upside down, that the occupants obviously flipped. We slowed and asked, they said the occupants were OK and un injured, just really cold and wet. They were taken on back to the ramp by a 2nd GW boat. Just makes you think!!

:head::head::head: A war eagle bowed like a banana?? Makes u wonder how tuff they really are...
This boat was crushed at Hurricane and it had a 50 hp on the back of it. Saw this boat in person at Sunrise the day after it happened and the man told me that the guy driving hit a stump and it threw him over and hit a tree. I don't care what kind of boat you have, if you hit a tree head on, running wide open, with a 50 hp, it's going to crush something.

There's still blood on the front deck in one of the pics

All I can say is learn your boat and don't drive like a retard. I seen a guy smoke a tree opening day down south and it looked like he never seen the tree. It was pure stupidity and the guy was driving a tiller with the wrong hand. People like that give alot of what we do a bad name just because they don't know how to drive and don't know there boat. I'm with y'all on any boat will tear up if you hit something hard enough. I'll take give anyone the lead if I don't feel safe and controlled of my rig.

I listen to boats running down sloughs and Bayous and boat roads all the time wide open. And I am one of them, but when I come up to a curve , You know the kind. You cant see around it but it is wide enough to keep going wide open. The bad thing is, there could be another guy coming into the curve as well from the other dirrection wide open. Thats what makes my hair stand up on the back of my neck. I always try and slow down and the whole time I am looking through the buck brush to try and see if someone else is entering the curve. That is where you could end a life.
