Fool,don't send me a message talking trying to defend yourself while talking trash about others. Be a man and put it out there! Here is the message you just sent me.
I'm not going to hash this out in public again but this is the God's honest truth. I spent close to 10 minutes trying to convince Ross to move his boat. I walked around camp and told every single person that I was getting ready to pull off, that I was semi-stuck and I was going to have to stand on it to leave. He assured me that everything would be ok. He was going to stand there and hold the rudders while I pulled off. I did everything short of getting on his boat and moving it for him. He came in an hour after I had been sitting at camp and parked directly behind me, rudder to rudder. After I was on the boat and the engine was running, Chester and a couple other guys spun the boat around, bow towards my boat. Chester did come up to me and said exactly that; keep an eye on the boat and if it lifts, we'll move it. You would have to know my boat but you cannot see directly behind me. I had my buddy Jason (Elevator Guy) watch and told him to hit me if the boat started to lift. He hit me, it was too late. Watch the video; it was less than 2 seconds from the time the boat started to lift to the time I let off but it was already going over. Who in their right mind would think a little sled would be ok behind a 550 hp carmotor boat anyways? There was all the room in the world for him to move that boat. In fact, if they were going to move the boat after it almost flipped, why the **** wouldn't they go ahead and move it ahead of time? On top of that, I tried three times, including immediately after it happened, to pay him. Every single time he had an excuse; 'I don't want money now because it might cost more than I think.' Even after he told me how much, he wouldn't take the money. It was a ****** up thing but I've had far more people back me up than tear me down. In fact, I've had people who know that group well tell me they deliberately turned his boat, knowing it would flip, because he had built the rigging with hydraulic tubing and it was a pile of ****. Don't know and don't care where you get your information but that is the plain truth. Anybody that has a different version is full of ****. The video proves it, the people that were there proves it and the only people that keeps this pile of **** on SA are the people directly responsible for Ross' boat getting flipped over. And it wasn't me. In fact, if Chester had left the boat alone, at worst, Ross' rudders would have got bent worse than they were, since they were already bent to hell. The best bet would have been for him to move his boat. Take it or leave it, but that is how it truly happened.
