    Default Water over the bow?

    I have a love for ballast and large wakes.

    How many of you guys Powerturn? Because that is part of the problem in itself.

    Most of us with heavy boats know how to turn around without sending huge rollers right????

    If I power turned where I ride and who I ride with they would throw me overboard.....lol

    My method for picking up a falenrider is after they fall....
    cut throttle....If your running nose heavy watch the bow
    then just as the boat is almost even in the water the wake causes a "push"
    I turn the wheel to the right and it kicks around( if REAL heavy in the nose start the turn a little earlier)
    then cruise back to the rider
    No wake to plow through or bury your rider.......
    You can also turn to the left if need.

    Is this the same method most of you folks use?
    This is our standard practice but some times there will be a down rider in the water and a large lizard nearby, in those situations we tend to be guilty of the power turn...

    I thought the large lizards are motivation not to fall?

    no power turns, unless there is a lizard factor or some ass in a boat bearing down on my fallen rider, or the worst-lake lice in the area

    How often, say average per summer, do you have lizard factors in FL or TX
    Old enough to know better, young enough to do it anyway.

    Worst in mid May around here as it's mating season. Most of the time during daylight hours there is nothing to worry about. But, keep your EYES open. And, stay out of the water at night.

    every time we go out, its in the back of my mind there in the water with us, even when not seen and that may be the spookiest part. I usually see one gator every six months just in the retention ponds along the roads

    I had heard every body of water in Florida has at least one gator in it.

    I sunk my nose 3 times in the 3 years i owned my lsv. first was inexperience... scared my wife pretty badly..... oops. Second time was because my step son and a couple buddies were in the nose and bein lippy.. third time was when i was having trouble with oil pressure switch and engine shut down as i was coming back into my wake...

    A buddy of mine has an 02 Malibu VLX and we had it dumped hard one evening and my other buddy driving. took water over the nose so hard it soaked the underside of the sun shade from splashing off the windshield... bilge ran for a long time after that one...
