Hooray for Jetboats

Some of you may have seen this on facecrack. Entertaining and terrifying at the same time.

So all that fiberglass, metal, plastic, gas and oil is just sitting on the bottom of the river slowly leaking or breaking down?

This seems stupid to me.

Amazing how quick it went under though!

You can actually see me in that video up on the shore. My friend has a closer video of the same wreak. I'm in the gray and black jacket in front of the video I posted.

@ jen: The fuel cells are made to contain "most" of the leakage. And the boat will be recovered. Its not a perfect deal but they do the best they can. I have personalty witnessed Hank Gosnell and Walt Linsey sink thier boats in the same place. I helped recover Linseys' boat in the later 90's and the engine/fuel cell still had 90% of the oils two months later. These guys truly do the best they can and spend a great deal of money to avoid spills.

Oh ya and did you see the marker the second guy released. Its a black floatie. It is attached to a rescue/recovery line. I heard that boat is out of the river. Don't know for sure though.

This could provide some interesting carnage.....

At least now they wear life jackets, I wonder if they'll wear a helmet and body armor too.

Call me a non-motorhead, but isn't the power for jet boats pretty much just the pumps? I'm curious how running holes will affect pump performance....... Clearly jetboats catch air and the intakes submerge again, but wow they're going to lose some speed on the NF. We'll see, it'll be novel, that's for sure.
