Default 22' Donzi trying to run us over

He wasn't really trying to run us over, just playing in the wake way too close and didn't pay attention to us slowing down. He did not hit us but came pretty close.

I imagine you were grabbing some throttle at that point.

You probably know this allready, and, I know its a pain in the ass when someone is too close, put your left hand up, if the guy is still closing in on you, he has no clue what that means, that still leaves you your right handle to throttle out. This was on a test that I took 5 years ago on the internet that I got wrong, Good Luck.

we were already off plane and he was still coming. I'm pretty sure he just head in a$$ sendrome, but with our motor only having about 2 hours on it, it was a pain to throttle it like that.
