That would scare the crap outa me.

At least both guys are wearing lifelines, but I don't see a tether on the driver.

I agree, it does seem scary. We know what 60mph is like and on a pontoon with two tubes instead of a V bottom whoaa ....when they were turning I could just imagine the nose catching a wave and pushing it under. Rather dangerous IMHO......but that's the kind of stuff that makes for good videos.
