Yeah he wasn't even close to toally holding it down Dave, if you hold that boat down the motor will for sure push it faster than the hull will allow and it will go over. Buckner knows the risks of having that boat, he has had enough fast boats and knows the limits of what he can push the boat. With that being said, shtt happens and it can happen to any of us that has a fast boat, you know the risk when you decide not to have a hunt style boat or a big party barge. Be safe and know you limits of the boat

Been running fast boats since 1986, and dont recomend everyone to go and try it but one big key is to read the water up ahead and seen many people haul ass and run right into a patch of grass and over they went and yes its a adrenaline rush.

800HP that's funny on pump gas with a hydraulic roller! Oh wait there are a ton of people that claim they do and many even have dyno sheets stating so. I know on a dyno she would not be very impressive!
