Wakes and the depth gauge

I posted something similar to this in the Catalina section but I don't think anyone reads that haha.

This is a 2 part question I guess, the past couple weeks it's been very busy in the Long Island Sound and I've had to jump a couple wakes from *delightful* giant powerboat owners. Is there a good way to deal with large wakes? I feel like it can't be good for the boat to smack down into the water. Part 2 of my question is that after hitting a couple large wakes my depth gauge is acting up. It'll show the actual depth, and then flash something like 2.5 feet. Could something have been knocked out of place? I'm not really familiar with the system so don't know where to look to check. My only other thoughts were either the battery is almost dead or there are just a lot of fish that follow me around
