Re: Recourse for Powerboats
Unfortunately, I don't believe there is any recourse.
I love the guys who slow WAY down, but because the aren't on plane anymore actually cut a HUGE wake. You know they are trying to be polite, but it would actually be better if they just kept going at their original speed.
Deal with that more in a kayak with the bass/ski boats on the local lakes....
We had one on Lake James that past from behind on the port side between us and shore that was only 20 yards off the port side, and proceed to make a sharp U-turn around us causing a huge wake then a hole that pulled us almost to grounding( we were on a starboard tack) Our 7 year old daughter was almost tossed overboard. IF I could have gotten my hands on that SOB well I guess I still would be in jail.
