NO KIDDING on the wakes. We were 5 miles out, heading E-NE and this triple decker stink pot cut in front of us, within 100 ft. At 5 miles out, that's like getting t-boned. The wake looked like something from a movie; had to be 6 feet tall. I cut the boat to 45 degrees so I'd roll a little instead of jumping it. Still, almost lost my lovely bride over the side. Ours is only a 25 footer so the big boys might handle it differently.
