    Actually it comes from the other side of the US, the Columbia River near Portland in Oregon, on August 12, 2017, shot by a GoPro cam mounted on the cabin top of their Weldcraft, that's how they got it captured on the vid till the very moment of impact.​

    I'm stunned at how well the boat stood up to that crash. I thought it would be sunk.

    Hi, I'm looking at this ad, anybody knows what blue things we see under the mattresses ?

    ( Spare link, both links are in German, but the text doesn't tell about this. )

    P.S. - Not interested in the boat, just curious what the blue things under the mattresses are . . :)

    I think they are springs to soften the base of the bed.
    Exterior sprung instead of the normal interior sprung mattress.
