You got lucky there quite a few times! I'm shocked it didn't end up splintered on the rocks.

In general, running straight at where people are standing is a really bad idea because it can do some serious harm them if it goes out of control.

Wait until you flip and it rips everything off the hull and ruins $100+ in batteries.

Then you can say FML... lol

Also, flipping & filling it with water would be an unpleasant finale too.

In all honesty, I'm not having a dig, but, you drive like that so close to shore & you deserve what will happen when you least expect it.


It happened to me recently, except, my boat ploughed through a fallen submerged tree at WOT on the far side of the lake.

Split the hull in half! hehehe

It's currently under repair.

On another note, I loved the video after yours of the boat driving up onto the trailer & then driving away hooked up to the 4WD..... VERY cool!
