Default Disaster.

Another disaster at sea.

My friends 20 cell monohull stopped intermittent on its maiden run, probably a receiver malfunction, we'll never know, because it got run over by a 1:1 boat and sank without a trace, despite the boyancy in the boat.

We guess the prop must have trashed it.

I feel kinda miserable, as I was the one driving, when it stopped and drifted in the path of the 1:1 boat.

Boohoo! ..... the weekend just started.

Regards, Jan

Default RE: Disaster.

O-O-o-o-o NO-O-o-o!!!,,, Sorry to hear that!,,, I feel for you & him, I lost my 1 month old Aqua Jet EP in a local river last year with 2 brand new 7cell SCR 1700 batts & a good Y-harness, the coupling broke and it stopped, then the current started taking it downstream quicker then I thought, or could keep up, on shore thru the brush, it was only about 20' out and I was waiting for the right moment to snatch it, but it never came, & I was suddenly stopped by heavy brush I couldn't get thru, as it was swept away, and despite numerous attempts, it was nowhere to be found.
