Lorne Campbell has specialised in the design of high-speed powerboats since 1970 and his lines have been used to produce some of the most successful offshore racing catamarans.
He has been employed on occasion to analyse what has happened in high speed craft incidents and accidents, both racing and non-racing.
His job is to look at the physical evidence, try to work out the truth and to give an opinion as to which side, if any, is closest to it.
I asked Lorne to share his views on the dramatic double flip of Team Allen Lawn Care and LPC at Key West.
