Yeah, the Launch (passenger). We were checking your boat out and wanted to say hello, but that thing is way too loud to try talking over so decided to just lay back and admire it from afar... LOL. 3 man race? 500efi's (or 525's) with bigger cams, etc? Sounds really nice!

It was definitely rougher in the shallow area just outside the river, but once west of that it was much claimer. It was pretty much the same most of the day in those areas.

You definitely will not find me in the left lane dragging the boat. It's illegal most of the time anyway. The 540i is a different story.

Isn't it funny how 2-3 foot waves become 5-6 foot waves when somebody else looks at them. No offense, but everytime someone on here gives wave heights, I automatically divide that number in half, and then it's usually something less than that.

I have to agree with you Frank. No offense taken. I would like to have seen what that website was reporting.

A researcher at Uconn got back to me on the history of this data. The above link lets you see wave height Max, Significant and a lot of other data.

Frank it is a pretty good tool for calibrating eyeballs. Mine needs a little adjusting, but I wasn't off by too much
