The transom is reinforced by an expert, so that won't be damaged by the engine. There aren't even stress cracks in it.
Well, you're right about the waves. If you hit a big one with over 55mph you're likely to crash. But why would you do that? I've been out on the waves yesterday, and if you keep the speed low, 20 to 25 mph, there's no problem at all, the boat is designed to do that.
Flying over waves with full speed is just madness.
