Stuffing Shot

Screen shot from a video, will post the video some time, shows wall of water just before it hits my console. I was expecting it before you ask as I was rushing to get back and going too fast over a following sea. Yes I got very wet.

that's a fantastic shot! The advantage of video. I bet no one else has a shot like it!!

How full was the boat with water? Did you have the trunks down?

Waiting for the vid.

No trunks on my boat, when I post the vid you can see water sloshing around the bow, I must have had about 8 inches of water all over the deck, the bilge pump turned on automaticly which suggested a lot of water had headed to the transom as the boat is dry when I set out. No real dramas, I just waited a couple of minutes for most to be pumped out and off I went. The vid camera is a go pro camera, has an excellent mount that fits onto the grab handle across my console.
