King Neptune has not taught you any lessons? Oh Oh, look out, you are due for one and it will not be pleasant.

,,,hmn...i dont consider myself the most "experienced" boater considering im only 13, but stil readin thru this thread was one of funniest thigns i ever read. weve gone over big "wakes" from toehr boats, or "swells"....but the worst weve ever been in "not speakin for my dad(was in big seas, gail winds etc, when he took test drive up north in winter when he first got stinger)" the worst acual consistent wakes i been in were true 3-4s in the old stinger..(the worst feeling was a 2 wake with a deep dip off a 55-65ish ft sea ray in the check at 40 some mph ).and i no a lot of people on here have been in waay worse, but some of the stories they tell that go along withthe big wake experience dont seem to be too "concinving"....nevertheless its great to hear the responses

A 6' wave measures 6' from crest to trough as pictured. If a class you took said different I'd ask for a refund

Detailed Wave Summary
H0 Significant Wave Height is the average height (meters) of the highest one-third of the waves during a 20 minute sampling period.

SWH Swell height is the vertical distance (meters) between any swell crest and the succeeding swell wave trough.

WWH Wind Wave Height is the vertical distance (meters) between any wind wave crest and the succeeding wind wave trough (independent of swell waves).

BTW I have a 38' Donzi ZX and have not done 80 in 6-8 foot seas, of course with 500s I can't do 80 in any seas

well knowledge can and does save lives,, especially when boating in the ocean. major inland water bodies etc, not saying its not just as important on smaller lakes etc but generally there is more congestion and in an event you would be more likely to ge assistance,
i think alot of people dont take serious enough and tragically it takes lives every year,, i think that for the majority and most part the folks that are involved here and have these types of boats have the smarts and common sense,, thankfully!!...
i think its good to have an understanding,
be able to read charts, be able to do some navigation, understand and know the currents and tides, be able to tie diff knots, know how to relay madays,
i ran into a guy this summer who had no idea why some marks were red and some green,

i wont say what kinda boat you guess

1, 42 tiger
2, 17 boston whaler
3, 18 open bow chaparell
4, 38 bayliner
5, 28 ft sailboat

1st correct answer will get a california fastboats t shirt in jan when our next run of shirts is done.

What's wrong with that? I do some of my best engineering on bar napkins.
