    I did that once when coming out of a port on Lake Michigan. I knew the waves were big and I knew that I would go out and turn around for a quick thrill because I didn't want to go boating in rough seas, however I didn't realize how bad it was until I was already in it---and once I was out from between the piers I know what that "commited" feeling feels like for sure----I immediately took two swells over the bow and I had 3 other people on board and this water definately had everyones attention! Planing off was impossible---I just wanted to get the boat turned around and I thought how am I even going to turn this hog around in this kind of water? We were only about 150 yards out---I just had to wait for the right second of opportunity to make a 180 and "throttle up" the engines at the right time. We took on about 25 gallons of water via the cockpit within the 5 minutes we were out there---the bilge pumps got a good workout that day. That was certainly a thrill that I don't care to experience again! Looking back I can only say I'm glad to at least to have learned from it without any loss.

    Glad you're okay Tank.

    If your boat has a sail do you ride a horse to the ramp?
