In reading an article today about an ATV rider dying in a roll over accident, got me to thinking.
With the weight/size of the machines today, what are the chances of those riding with you, of being able to get the machine off you while under water? All of the machines that we have weigh between 700-1300lbs dry! I know that I am not able to lift/move one of them. While they all have winches on them, how long would it take to get the winch deployed in order to be able to move the machine?
What emergency procedures do you have in such of case? When it really can get ugly is when one machine is out!
