Hunter Bland and Conner Young were cruising at 60 mph during a Fishing League Worldwide College tournament on Lake Seminole, Florida. They were heading to their first stop when a locknut came loose on the boat’s hydraulic steering, rendering the steering wheel useless and kicking the outboard to one side.
The University of Florida students were automatically ejected from the boat. A mounted camera captured the dramatic situation. Luckily, nothing happened to them and both managed to swim back to the boat, and climb in.
