James was on the boat judging the men's amateur surf division, I believe, and relayed the story to us.
You have to understand the venue first. It's the existing site for a club that does waterski shows, they have barefoot demo's, those pyramid ski shows and then also the double ski jumps. The jump itself is stored over to the side just off the shore but they have anchor lines down to river bottom out in the middle of the river. So, when we arrive for the event, the buoy is out there and it's visible, but not by much.
One of the riders fell during that division and the boat turned, but the flow of the river is about 1 to 2 mph and they ran over one of the buoys and it wrapped up the prop like there was no tomorrow.
The PCM guys awarded Jeff Page, who was driving the boat, a special trophy for "running over a visible buoy".
