    Apparently, the hydraulic steering failed.

    Each time I see a video like this I tell myself I will start wearing my kill switch. That prop was heading straight towards them.

    Amazing how none of them other boats stopped . . . . . or even slowed down smfh

    Kill switch and auto-inflating PFDs saved these guys. Could've been much worse.

    All the boats that passed them should have been sanctioned by the tournament. If they have captains licenses they should be disciplined! How do you fly by two guys in the water and not stop!

    If that doesn't make you want to run out and get a auto inflation life jacket I don't know what would.

    Extremely lucky guys, could have been alot worse than it was, a real eye opener on wearing a P.F.D. and the kill switch.

    60 - 70 mph on the water is always risky. There is nothing for the passenger to hold onto. My A$$ always puckers the few times I have found myself in one of these rockets.
    I seen a canoe swamped and boats just turn to avoid them and keep going. Didn't even slow down. They wouldn't even slow down while we fished them aboard and towed their canoe ashore.
    I had a guy tell me if you cannot handle my wake you don't belong out there. So you believe this gives you the right to risk a life because you own a big boat? J walkers are not in a legal cross walk, so are they fair game to run down?

    At about 2:30 you can see their vests inflate in slow motion. Imagine if they had been knocked unconscious.
