I also think they will die a little but space out to nice rollers, I am taking the Zodiac out, if anyone wants pics I will have the camera and I will look, or more likely listen for you. I even wear a helmut sometimes, this may be one, a good vest, the lanyard and I even tie a rope to my ankle so I don't loose the boat, with wind and waves like this the boat would be gone even if stopped. When we say 10 is big it is because the waves are a second apart and about 10ft wide so they are 10 ft walls of water. So look for this and I will follow you.
My boss just bought a 21' Zodiac with a 175 E-Tec on it! The boat takes off like a jetski!!

no, not yesterday
this was last year, but my pic shows how nasty lake michigan can get. ( or how awesome)

I should have had a life jacket on, but not sure if I would tie a rope to my ankle like mitch ( shhhhhhhh he's a little crazy)

I was on the lake in 10' swells in my 211 liberator. the year they cancelled the offshroe races in Grand haven. we were going to be a race patrol boat, so we headed out to play instead.

That is one pretty pic of a level-flying Formula! You guys have great water over there- we certainly enjoyed it the summer I had my AT over there at Great Lakes.

I had my 211 Liberator out in some pretty nasty stuff in the North Channel of Lake Huron a time or two- it still amazes me how capable a boat they are- would own another one for a toy in a hearbeat.

I have been out in 8's in my 11' Zodiac with a 9.9 merc. This was when I was a teenager. My dad told me not to go out and I went out anyway, he caught me and my boating previledges were taken away for quite sometime. It was worth it though!
