    Why it is so important to watch out for the BUCK on a P-X

    Guys here is a P-X boat that was a friend of mine that had a 80+ MPH ski. He paid close attention to details and the ski had a R&D grate. Ran 80+ all day with a 100degree weather.....
    BUT it happened.... Boom.. Buck and heres his luck!!! Pictures...

    NO, but he has had it for 112hours like this and he has never felt anything that felt like a buck and was happy with it..... But it did happen and he said he wasnt real sure if it was but he had said he was comming back over his own wake. I told him, Yep it bucked ya.

    How is he feeling? Hope he is not hurt badly. Was he in shallow water? Almost looks like he hit a log or something.

    Mind telling us what his pump and engine set up was? Prop and pitch? Exit nozzle size? Steering nozzle size, OEM, R&D? Wedge? Rideplate? ECU? SCer? This info may help other guys decide, if its worth pushing one of the PXs past 80.

    Well he was dazed and cunfused, but OK. He said he had a full tank of gas and wanted to run it before he put it up. SO he was getting it hard and came back over his wake and that is all he remembers, but witnesses said it pitch hard one way into the bank and the bank was solid rock and shit. He didnt think nothing was wrong and jumped on it to take off and it sank.
