Maine Sail, I've seen 13 knots down a wave on a boat with a theoretical hull speed of 6.9. It ain't fun. If it's a tiller boat like mine, you're arching back and using rowing technique with your feet planted on the opposite seat. Your neck gets a crick in about 30 minutes with hours to go. However, remember these other guys have seen worse crap than I.
