A head sea?

Puddle players always complaining how rough the pond is. I'll take my Outer Limits tub in the open Atlantic over a Fountain any day.

Where were all the Fountains at SOTW?

One good thing I can say about the fountain is they run good as long as you're on top of it. If you're not running hard/fast they'll beat ya up pretty good. I learned this after countless hours on a 42 with tripples.

The Gulf of Mexico is not an ocean it is a millpond.I have spent thousands of hours on the gulf and 20 years cruising all over the great lakes and I have never seen anything on the Gulf short of a hurricane that would compare to some of the weather i have seen on the great lakes.I know you have all heard the old story of lake michigan going from dead calm to 12 footers in 30 minutes from some old salt but i have witnessed it and i have never seen that phenonom on the gulf of mexico.I can,t comment on the Alantic or the Pacific but I beleive those our some serious bodies of water also.

I live and boat, and have raced on both Lake Michigan and the Gulf, and I completely agree.
