As expected, it didn't work out so well.

I have had the "don't try it in a Bow Rider" discussion with dozens of guys that come down her with their "Flat Water" lake boats (Great Lakes excluded).

They all think they can come down from Tennessee and Georgia and make the crossing to the Bahamas...not with an open bow. All it takes is one to break over the bow...and their done.
