I have a 04 LSV and keep hearing about it and the Outback V taking water over the bow anyone had this problem before? Sounds like someone just not paying attention to the water or wakes of other boats.Thanks

paying attention or not, eventually a roller or 2 ends up inside
Mostly happens when I have someone else pulling me. Less likely on models with larger draft but the Outback and Outback V it's easier to have happen for sure.

I'll never forget the time we had the boat LOADED down with sacs and 8 people. Had people up front and the rider fell. Dropped throttle, made my turn, right into a roller from another boat. I saw it coming, tried throttling up to avoid a submarine but...... TSUNAMI!!!!!!!!! The nose didn't pick up in time and shot straight into the roller like a torpedo. People on the back bench even got soaked on that one! Fun times, fun times!Stephen

Ha Stephen, reminds me of a time I drenched a guy that fell asleep in the bow. Great time. I've also been known to see how close I can get to it coming over in an effort to fake out the people in the bow.
It's avoidable but inevitably there will be a time you aren't paying attention, a buddy is driving, a huge roller comes through when you can't position, etc and you take one over the bow.
