We was at the bus with a gut that had a Ricochet hull with a bad ass LS1 440 on it. We was told at Indian mound it was him. The boat was 90+ mph.

It is not my place to say who it is or what his injuries are, but He is busted up pretty bad, but going to be ok.

No big secret on FB, it was Bronson, thank god some of the guys got to him he was out face down. Better for folks to read it and remember that if you going to run at speeds that a C172 takes off at with lite high Hsp boat wear a good jacket that float you face up and be safe. They reported hit some grass running into the wind and flew it couple broken bones and hull is toast. That is from a guy that was there with pics. So atta boy for the Paul Tillman, Kevin Rhodes and Dennis Crow that got him out of the water and prayers for Bronson that he heals fast. Be safe guys

I'm doing well, I screwed up. I hope everyone learns from my mistake, always wear a life jacket when hauling but. Can not thank Paul Kevin and Denis enough, they saved my life. I should be getting out of hospital tomorrow with reset fractured shoulder and bruised lung. I was extremely lucky, not to mention the riggin, motor, prop, and guard are all perfect. Just need a hull.... Not in a rush

It was a VERY scary thing to see and still can't stop thinking about seeing Bronson floating face down in the water. God was with him without question! A big thanks to everyone that helped Paul Tillman(Ptillman) Kevin Bailey(FLABOY) Eric Raulerson(TIGO541) and I know I'm missing some but thank you! I really hope this is a reminder of just how dangerous this stuff can be... A life jacket,helmet and a brake is a must have when running boats of this caliber. JMO!
I have somebody's rope PM me or call me and I will make sure you get it back (561)261-6390 Kevin.

This isn't funny or anything but Mr. Vento I have to say that is funny right there...glad your ok but hindsight is a bitch sometimes... it can happen in an instant without warning on these fast boats. Get better dude...it was a bad ass looking little boat by the way, I seen a photo of it last night and it looked real good

Pete, don't count me out that easy. I should have never been running that hard into the wind. I will never race or make a hot pass again without a life vest. My adrenaline was rushing and I thought I was invincible . Big Time reality check.

Bronson call the guy that built your hull I think it was him that picked that stuff up... I can't remember his name. He picked it up as soon as I took you in.

I knew when I seen you turn back around facing into the wind and get on it I knew what was about to happen... That hull was extremely free and wasn't a chance that that flying it wasn't gonna happen. The wind was bad.
