Well, if you have ever contemplated boat racing this video may cure you of that desire. This collection of racing boat crashes is completely bonkers. Right off the bat you will see one that’ll make your eyes bug out of their sockets. That’s the first 10 seconds and it only gets more mental from there. To race on a surface that is infinitely variable at any moment is just beyond crazy to us. Wether we are talking about massive off-shore boats, little sprint boats, or the flat bottom drag boats and nitro burning hydros that people flock to see, it all strikes us as a bit batty.
People have been chasing speed on the water for well more than 100 years. It ain’t easy and water is about as unforgiving a surface to crash on as exists in the world of motorized competition. If it’s near concrete like nature does not kill you with a rapid stop and a disintegrating craft it can also drown you as your broken machine heads to Davy Jones’ locker post wreck. Sounds fun, right? Yikes.
So to all of you boat racers out there, good luck. Seriously. Good luck, we don’t want to see anyone we know end up in a video like this one!
