I see way too many folks with Bravos that are trying to be 'cool' and trim their boat to the moon for a rooster tail. There was someone doing it on a Poker Run last year in a 22' boat w/ a Bravo, and the boat was WAY out of control, and no one would go near him.

Not only are you going to break your U-joints, but you are going to find a little wave to launch off of at the perfect wrong time, and the boat is going to get way out of control and hurt someone, or worse.

Not advised.

If you want to throw some water around, drop your trim tabs all the way down.

Surfacing a bravo will break it with time. Number sixes and a little hp will get you this.
