What causes the boat to Go like that. Doesnt it land stern first because of weight, or was it a trim issue?

The Gulf was a washing Machine that day... Waves from every direction... I did not see it coming... The boat is VERY tab Sensitive and maybe I had just a touch too much... Jas... Do you think some additional positive trim would have helped??? I NEVER run the boat with Negative Trim... Dead Level would be the most I would ever go....

Good looking clip Mike. I wish we had made it a little ways past the first 20 miles.

Was wondering when you were going to post this vid! The best part was the crowd's reaction at the dinner banquet that night when they showed this clip. Over...and over...and over.
