in "on coming" seas?
We came home from the Chicago Air and Water show on Saturday and were greeted by a stiff north wind and building seas to 3-5'
The tabs were set at halfway and she just motored through those suckas...we parked a 38' F****** on the way back.

REAGIE DESIGNED IT,, world record holder!
its not a tub like ol's cigs etc..
but the fountains sure do run good in that snot when you get on top and pour on the steam.
OHHHH, this oughta be good.
Cause you were in a lake with a lake boat?....
ahhhh that hurts,,Originally Posted by Schweeng
that was a good one,
I was on the "Lake" in my lake boat that day as well. I can tell you Lake Michigan at 22,300 square miles can be some of the roughest, hardest to read waters in the world. I would love to be on the ocean instead. At least on the ocean the waves are all the same with no holes to drop in like the this little lake we boat on. It seems about every 25th wave is a rogue that looks like a wall of water coming at you with a very large hole behind it and another two waves behind almost as large. It is very tough to maintain a steady speed. You start to get confident thinking there just can not be more of those tidal waves coming and you start to build up speed and then another big one comes along.
A few of the old-time races at Grand Haven were regarded as some of the worst water conditions in offshore racing history.
I've been in a few Fountains and have yet to have anyone ever suggest they were "wave crushers".
Hey i love cigs/apaches, but i been on a 42 fountain and it was a nice/solid boat.......i think Rio Roses say's it all..........
Summed up very well....Originally Posted by Brad Zastrow
