I kept watching this video thinking "Just how far is he going to push this boat...it's already walking all over the water?" I guess you push it 'till it breaks.

Watched that a while ago and laughed then. Laughed even harder this time. Honestly, is it just me, how many of you do fly by's while your buddy tapes you. What a tool! But, then again it, I wouldn't have been able to enjoy it over and over.

That's the same thing I thought. It wouldn't have been funny if he was driving like he had some common sense. But it you want to keep pushing the limit....:rolleyes:

Thanks for sharing the video, this guy is a complete moron. I have a really hard time feeling bad for anyone that stupid. His life jacket and kill switch only saved his life because he was dumb enough to risk it. Almost a shame natural selection didn't get it's chance...

I think this happened last year, pretty sure he was doing a boat test for a magazine, hence so much video.

This makes no sense, what is there to prove driving a bass boat at 70 mph? Last time I checked fish could not swim that fast.

LOL I totally agree! My fishing boat runs 30 topped out and I may run it 25 but mostly 21...

I just don't understand that.......

I agree with Tex, the life jacket and kill switch wouldn't of been needed if he wasn't being a retard.

I'm not a fisherman, but I think the idea is to get to the good fishing spots before the other guys during a tournament.

Does a wake boat need to go faster than 25 mph? :rolleyes:

That's what I've always heard too, but I didn't think they would jump boat wakes in order to get there. "A man has got to know his limitations". I agree, he was just being a 'tard.:D

Agreed:

Going 70 mph = not being a 'tard.

Jumping boat wake at 70 mph = being a 'tard.

I wonder if he has to sit in the side-ways seats on the short bus, and how well the short bus tows the glitter rocket.

We always referred to those guys as ba$$holes.

Awesome name.... Just last weekend we happened to arrive at the ramp just as a tournament started. Ramp was slammed and most people were nice, but there was a handful of these "ba$$holes" that were so competitive that they were cutting in line to get their boat in the water first. We just shook our head and let them pass; particularly since they were not allowed to leave the no wake zone until the start time. Was good experience for my wife as she had to back the Prostar off the trailer through a bass boat traffic jam.

How is it that the camera boat couldn't get him out of the water for 10 minutes? If that was a shoot for a test boat, I wonder how the boat rated.

That's what I was wondering also. Someone is FOC.

I just want to know what the camera man was doing while his buddy was laying face up in the water for 10 minutes? :confused: That boat was on the verge of being out of control because of the way it was driven, and they want to turn that into a PSA for wearing your life jacket and kill switch. How about using it to illustrate how not to operate a boat???:rolleyes:

Important safety tip but I think you take the HP of the motor divided by 10 to arrive at the driver's IQ.

Hay dare Billy bob, I can cast myself..

Once boat sinks we got "structure" to fish.

one reason boats need seat belts.... so when it sinks to the bottom of the lake, the idiot is still belted in.
