Headed back to Havasu from Pirates this evening around 5:30 as we were passing the shallow area Back onto the main lake we saw 2 ranger boats, a few sea dont’s and 2 whites sponsons sticking out of the water. Anyone else see it or know the story?

We were the first on scene. He was over trimmed and getting after it. Then he went over

We grabbed the driver and passenger. They then went to their friends boat......

They didn’t stick around for the cops lol. And wouldn’t let my Nurse wife check them out.

Scared the shit out of me. We were just past the mouth of the river by 50-100 yards. I look over to my left and watch him lose it once and recover. But he never lifted and hit another wake and went over.

Glad it was just the two of them because we were all ready to go swimming looking for people.

When you say it went over what exactly do you mean? Like the bow lifted and it blew over?

My SIL called 911. I took the phone and said we had the occupants. Then they floated to their friend boat.

About that time my wife is coming to them on the jetski to check on them and try to check them out.

I’m still on the phone with 911 as they tell my wife no we’re fine and don’t call 911. Then I see the boat on plane headed towards the island lol

911 tells us you need to stay with the boat till sheriffs arrive.

Mohave sheriffs showed up quick and were very nice to us

Left sponson went up. Entire boat out of the water rolling left to right.

But also caught air. So it was a controlled barrel roll back flip.

You guys are ridiculous.
Not drunk. Not reporting stolen. Not more money than brains.
Good friend of mine had an accident and we took them to the hospital to be checked out.
An accident and nothing more than that.
How are they doing?

I am assuming by your response this might be your boat? I am glad to hear you guys are okay! As a cat owner myself, what do you think caused the rollover?
Not his boat but he's also a good friend of the owner.

No, I'm a v-bottom guy, so not my boat.

Catpeople = meh

But seriously...if this were me, it would be nice to have a friend like Lunatic Fringe. Takes someone to the hospital, AND trailers the boat to pickle the motor? We need more guys like that in this world.

I need hospitalization but don't call 911, refuse a nurses advice, let my boat sink. No fucking way.
The following now looks like an over reaction/asshole post by me but only because GRADS deleted 1 or 2 of his comments.

You can call it anything you fucking want you twat.
You don't know what you're spouting off about.
Troll shit that you think is funny but don't fucking start on this.
There's nothing here that needs your opinion.

Thanks for clearing things up Neil.

I think GRADS has a point, whole situation seems weird to me.

None of my business though and glad everyone is ok, boats can be repaired.

knowing LF very well I can assure you that he jumped into action immediately and knew they could get the parties off the lake faster to medical help rather than waiting for medical to arrive. Time matters.
