Hey Incognito:

re:

"Hope you have a Vee bottom...It's a lot more forgiving than a cat"

.................NOT!


If you blow it....you blow it....... Cat's just let you do it at a higher speed........ ask Mr. David.

Thanks for the replies and insight. By the look of it, the answer to the original question is that you are SOL.

Cats are less forgiving than a vee bottom??? Have you ever been in a cat? Why don't cats have standup seats? Don't need them.

Make sure you are wearing your lanyard to shut the boat off when you get ejected.

This guy got ejected but still held onto the wheel. Boat never flipped.

Sorry I have a photo but can't get it small enough to meet the 60,000 byte size and still have it large enough to see.

Default GAS IT !!!

If your crooked on launch and or in the air , and you back off the throttles ..When you reenter its like having drift anchors on the back ..The non spinning props act like brakes , pushing the bow deeper into the water making it hook harder ....Gas It as soon as you can ! Im talking V's from experience..

Default You got it Pantera1

Throttle your way out, and tell your rider to grab the "jesus bar"! A non rotating prop will act like a sea anchor!

Hey Strike:

No sweat about the spelling.......but you can always edit the post.

Let's see....you're an old hydro driver from Niagara Falls......Hmmm? (T2x rummages in the vast resources of his "obsolete" mind and pulls out this little nugget)............... Ever heard of "Joy Boy".......Joe Giambrone?........... How about Jules LeBouef?

T2x.......... So original, that BEFORE they made him ....they broke the mold.
