Hunter Bland and Conner Young of the University of Florida Bass Fishing Team, get ejected from their boat while running approx. 57 mph. This was due to a steering system part failure. Praise God, both young men were not injured. Thanks again to FLW for their boating safety checks. Wear your life jackets and kill switches!

Joe Landry It was a lock tight nut, that came off of the hydraulic steering. Which caused the assembly to come apart.

I know that feeling, it sucks. Fell off my buddies jet ski at 65 mph. Had a boat of strangers that were anchored by the beach come check and me and I had to act like everything was cool even though I was running on adrenaline, embarrassed and 100' + away from the ski.
