Safety Lanyards....

So, I know 99+% don't wear them while operating, but as a PSA, if you know you're going to drive like a douche put the thing on.....

10 Hurt By Runaway Boat on Lake Gage

I know, she was drinking and wouldn't have thought of it. But it might have saved a couple of skull fractures and an amputation

How do ALL 10 people fall out?
Yes in this rare case of stupid r than average stupidity it would have done its job, but sometimes the lowest common denominator gets a little lower. Dumb biatch!

Maybe they jumped? I started to think the SaN was not rated for 10, a quick google search shows max of 14 people? That'd be more crowded than a Chebby Peekup in South Texas!

To launch all 10 people out of the boat at once that must have been some power turn.

Those boats have a mind of their own.

Im guessing a power turn through its own wake so that it kind of jumped out, and then hooked when it landed sideways or something.

Crazy. Sucks people got hurt.

I would like to know her BAC at the time of the event.
