to do the link thing on a PC all you have to do is highlight the address of the video in the top bar, and press 'CTRL' and 'C' at the same time. Then when you go into your boatmad post (where you'd normally be typing) press 'CTRL' and 'V' at the same time, that should copy the address and it automatically becomes a link.

That video shows how quickly bad things can happen, nothing serious seemed to be happening at all!

I've been dying to ask this for ages....

I've been driving slow boats for about 30 years, started with a sims super V with a 55 yam on the back at age 10! Over the years I've driven probably thousands of customer and my own boats mostly all in typical Irish sea conditions.

In all that time the fastest I've ever gone is around 65mph maybe a bit faster. I've never had a major issue, certainly nothing that scared me to much or made me feel like I was about to leave the boat.

My latest acquisition is a P21 with a nice lightweight Merc 2.5 200 on the back. I'm sure this thing will do at least 70mph.

Am I now entering the speed range where I'm going to come unstuck? Is it possible to catch it when this happens? Is it a learned skill, instinct or luck?

What are the warning signs? I've felt loads of boats chine walk when trimmed out a bit too much and not had a problem.

I'm looking forward to hearing some life saving tips :-)

I'm by no means an expert on driving fast boats plenty on here far more experienced. But setup definitely helps, as much as driving ability. Get someone familiar with the handling of your particular boat to drive it and make sure it's handling like it should. Also take your time getting used to it.
By the looks of the video, both boats were trimmed out for flat water when they hit a wave. Watch the first boat at the exact same point. Boat was probably just over trimmed when it got to the wave and got out of shape. Doesn't look like a lot could have been done once it got out of shape. Maybe driver should have noticed the wave or the reaction of the lead boat, who knows.
But when it happens is usually too late to do anything about it.
