your not being argumentative are you?

Well let me explain, if a big rogue wave is coming towards you or away from you, the tubes (and boat) don't go thought the wave but over the top of the wave.

Argumentative, I don't think So I'm just asking a forum memebr whom I have some respect for (AndrewH) why he likes the bow design. I was going to ask him to speculate how Neutons Third law of motion applied to the water hitting the high bow

I have time for Delta's, I owned a Dash 5.5 with twin YAMMIE 40's about 6 year ago and it was a very well fitted out boatcertainly well made.Shame it was such a pig in the rough head sea or I'd still have it.

Apologies for bringing this back to boring boat stuff
