Re: Recourse for Powerboats

Powerboats are in a different world. I do not expect them to slow to a stop to pass and would rather they stay up on plane to pass quickly and leave less wake. The great majority will try to minimize the situation but sometimes you're just going to get waked. If you just make a quick right angle turn and fall in behind, there is really no big issue. It is annoying at times and I have to admit I've raised a hand signal on occasion but there are idiots in all areas of life.
