It’s not every day that you get to see a Mastercraft X1 dangling from a helicopter a few hundred feet above the ground. When you combine extreme flooding with a sand bar, that’s the only means of rescue for a new boat that gets stranded. We can only imagine what was going through the owner’s mind while he watched his toy being plucked off the mud. In the end though, everything turned our fine and the X1 survived it’s harrowing trip suspended from a Bell 212 helicopter by a single cable.
The first part of the video is pretty slow and many induce some nausea in those that are predisposed to motion sickness. The big action is at the end though, and is worth the wait.
