Default Bass boat malfunction





This is crazy, they are lucky. Both wearing life jackets and driver must have had kill switch tether attached. The unfortunate part was that I counted 3 boats blast by before someone stopped.

Those other tournament boats who blew by without stopping should have been DQed and fined.

there were 4 boats that blew by. and you could see the kill switch tether when he climbs back in the boat. talk about a "rude awaking" that is one thing that I am negligent about; wearing the kill tether when running hard; up on plane. one never know when you are going to hit something or something else happening like this. gotta remember to do that

My Best Friend in a Walleye tournament up in South Dakota when they had a shotgun start or a cannon start all the boats took off and a Man took off at the sound and his wife was standing up. She went out the back and my friend's boat picked her up out of the water and he did not know for a few minutes she was gone and came back to get her.
I would not want to bet what was said then.

Had this happen to me once as a passenger at about 50 luckily know one got thrown out though. I also watched my buddy do that this year with two other friends of mine at about 55 turning to come into the beach and letting off at the same time caught a wave and threw all 3 of them out. Very scary deal!! I was running this last summer as well around 74 and lost steering bolt came loose. Luckily I was in smooth water and noticed it when I did
