that seemed to flip pretty easily! they looked like they had the boat right on the edge and going well but there didnt seem to be much swell or other boat wash.
could that happen if a blade was to come off the prop or other damage, causing the boat to veer suddenly?

We did hit a cruiser wash running diagonally to our course.
In the slo-mo vision you can see where we allmost stuff on the first wave, navigator smashed his head on the dash on that one.
The next one catches us under his seat and drops the nose into the trough. Boat follows the path of the cruiser wash and over we go.

New season starts 10-11 April

May be a little more conservative this time and not run the 4 blade 34"

glad to hear your both ok and thanks for the explanation.

did you recover the boat ok and if so was there any damage after such a severe jolt?
looks like the safety marshalls got to you pretty quickly.

good luck for the new season

The safety and rescue crews looked after us really well.

Port wing was torn off and starboard side split open.

It has taken a while but she is all back together and ready to go.

Were the mounts or steering a bit sloppy? Seems to be a bit of movement on the engine?

250 Ho

I will be running a new 250 HO on my 23 bat boat, can you advise me on the setup. I have a 8 inch power lift but with the regular water pickup I am not sure how high to mount the engine. I will be running a 14.5 26 Raker II TBX, again any suggestions. We ran a 280 Merc and got 86 on light chop, can we expect same or better?
This is her with the merc

heavier and longer - it will need more skill that's for sure!
