Water over the bow?
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.Thanks2004 Mobius LSV 340 HP

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.
