Must See Video: UF Bass Team Boat Accident Going 57 mph

   01.18.17

Here’s an adrenaline rush for you! A perfect example of why you always wear a life jacket and kill switches on a boat. We’re just glad nobody was injured.

In this clip, Hunter Bland and Conner Young of the University of Florida Bass Fishing Team, are seen cruising across the lake running about 57 mph. Suddenly, the boat starts acting funny, and just as you begin to realize it, the two anglers are ejected from the boat.

This accident was apparently caused by a steering system part failure.

These two guys are very fortunate they weren’t injured at all. A little shaken up sure, but they both get back up on deck at the end of the video. Whew! Scary stuff.

Remember, this is a great example of why you always wear a life jacket and kill switches. Stay safe out there on the water.
