If this doesn't make you want to take it slow on the water, I don't know what will.
These guys are lucky to still be alive after attempting to break the world record for top speed on a bass boat. Their video claims they already broke the record once, but they wanted to see if they could do even better, so let this souped-up boat rip across some wide-open water.
Unfortunately, they only made it to ho-hum 102 mph before their vessel caught the speed wobbles as bad as a novice skateboarder going down a steep hill.
But the question we're all wondering is what does it look like when a boat flips at that speed?
Watch the video below:
If you've ever been on a bass boat, you know how fast even 40 mph feels. So try to imagine moving at this kind of speed on flat, open-top boat. Can you imagine what that wind must've felt like?
Anyone who's spilled while water skiing at 20 mph knows that surface feels like pavement when you fall in. How do you think these guys felt as they climbed back into that boat?
It's honestly a miracle these guys walked away unscathed, although their boat might not have had the same luck; it's hard to tell.
This should be a lesson that an accident can happen in an instant, so always make safety the top priority!
