Actually, it is the reverse. The prop spray will lift a cat, but a long rooster will drive a Vee's bow down from weight. The Cat will tend to go straight when this happens, but a Vee will "hunt" for a new area and grab or spin.

Same when a Helo would get real low over us. I would get soooo pissed.

You must have a source other than Merkel.
I don't remember who the source was now, and, this information that was passed along to me by the agent after the shock of seeing what a 32 Skater was going to cost me to insure.
