I heard him yell in the video "Hey Ya'll, watch this."

He appears to be over compensating for a deficiency or two

I'm sure he'll be on the forum bashing Donzi saying that they are junk. That he was running in a light chip and the POS cracked in half. Customer service won't do anything for me....

And there is a member of THT that'll will swear to it, he witnessed it, knows the owner, in direct contact with the owner, and has the inside scoop.

Fortunately for him, insurance covers stupidity. I've watched the video several times and don't think he meant to do that or even end up inside the break. RegArdless of wether or not there could be a possible repair, insurance will most likely total it and attempt to get whatever salvage they can from the motors and parts. I can't imagine they would chance spending the money on repairs considering they might not work.

Heard Ocean Beach mentioned, just north of San Diego. Been there, water smells funny.

Isn't that Alcatraz in the background of the still shot?

I am pretty sure that the damage is from the 2nd wave where he really caught air. That damage is not from coming down into water. He probably went into the bottom in the trough of that wave. there was most likely only a foot or two of water after that breaker.

Obviously a man who did not know the waters he was in or simply not one that should own and operate a boat like that (or any boat).

As a surfer as well as a boater, that video scares the crap out of me.

Does anyone know if he got inside of those breakers on purpose?

Or did he get lost or somehow misjudged his position relative to shore or something?

If a repair is possible and in order then might as well take it to the guys that built it I would think.
Yeah, how do we know this isnt cosmetic only. Brittle gelcoat. Dont jump to conclusions.

How he got into this situation and his potential intelligence level aside....

I'm still suprised that he broke the boat in half, unless there really wasn't enough water under him and he hit bottom.

Even then, there was a recent post where a boat builder intentionally dropped their boat from 20' (not sure how high...) onto the ground to test durability and the boat was fine.

The guy was dumb, no doubt about it. I'm still skeptical that that type of damage is expected....
