    So took a friend to Cave Run, hoping to get on some Crappie, get there and find out there is a 100+ boat Muskie Tourney going on. Head out fish a number of hours, winds were high and it was rough. We finally packed it in and come back to the ramp and to the right of the ramp we see this! Guess he was in a hurry to get to the ramp first and missed the turn! One guy hauled off to Hospital (ejected from boat), driver refused treatment. He was breathalized and let go. Never did hear what actually was the cause. Be careful out there.

    That would mess up your day. Seen that happen at Ky lake couple of times. Seen couple of bass boats hit before where guys were killed down there to.

    One of the local guys here races a drag boat. He was testing on the Green River outside Central City. Bunch of us on the shore watching. He lost it and ended up in a corn field quite a ways from the water. Nobody wanted to go check on him because they just knew Ronnie was dead. Was not but a few minutes until he walk down the bank yelling for someone to come help. They figured he was at 150 mph when he went airborn and up that bank. Took them several hours to get the boat back to the water. But the darn thing floated and they towed it back to the ramp.

    I couldn’t imagine 150 on water! Had a friend who had his in the low 80s one time and I had to lay in the floor b/c I thought my darn face was peeling off! I’ll admit I’m a bit of a wus when it comes to speed.

    He has a capsule cockpit on his boat so he don't feel any wind. With one engine combo he has ran it will hit near 180 on flat water in quarter mile. You should see that thing jump when the nitrogen kicks in at about half track. I told him not for me water is like concrete at that speed. Watched a guy die when his open cockpit boat went airborn and landed backwards at Thunder on the Green at Livermore a few years back. It must had went 20 ft straight up then slammed him into the water at over 100 mph. They say it broke near every bone in his body. I was standing where I could see the rescue boat pass with him loaded up. He was blue like it also busted every blood vessel in his body.

    Have to be a single fisherman tournament, with Ronnie's boat no room in the stern for that second seat....LOL. I did see a bass style boat down on Barkley lake with twin 250 hp Merc's hanging off the stern tho.

    Fastest I ever been on the water was 83 My dang eye lids were flapping. But I have yet see a fish run down a fast Bass boat and catch it.

    My 18 foot long Nitro with the tricked out 150 hp, really 200 hp would do 73 with two people in it according to a GPS. On totally flat water trimmed up until not much but the prop in the water and sounded like bacon frying under the boat at that speed.

    He was supposedly looking at his graph instead of where he was going . I wasn't there just word of mouth from some friends that were.
