I do it all the time to "cool off" the folks up front! It is preventable if you pay attention.. It is all so very easy to do once you learn how to.

I would say spearing your own wake is the most common - but I don't boat i busy water. I would naver take my 99 Mobius in high seas or even on a busy river - just because of the low freeboard at the nose. We first found out by accident if you come about quickly/sharply and throttle down - it is almost inevitable. Your choices are to either throttle up before you ht the wave OR get the boat more parallel to the roller. If you are sideways to the roller you just get an awkward waggle. If you are perpendicular to it and at no/low throttle - you cuold easily tke on a lot of water.If you believe something to be true, it will be - in it's consequences.

I used to take rollers frequently in my OBV until I learned how not to- now I never do unless I want to. My buddy has a Tige which the salesman assured him is a "dry boat" and I make it a point to soak his carpet at least twice a summer.2008 OBV

Only done it once in mine. We came upon a huge set of rollers from tubers running circles, I had a pregnant lady on board and was told by my wife to not bounce her around much, I had to throttle down to avoid crashing through the rollers so we ended up submarining through two of them, water over the windshield, everyone is now soaking wet but I at least didn't bounce the lady... opened my floor hatch to the center drain to let the water get to the bilge pump, kicked on all ballast pumps to drain the bags and get us higher in the water and idled back to the rider and then the dock... good timesKraig - 2010 Outback V
