Props creates higher wake's lateral waves than water jet. When sea is windy and choppy like to enter boats middle wake from behind, it's like riding on top a paved road in which you ride at a much faster rate than on your own.

If wanting to get out need to throttle back to slow down for lateral waves to be reduced in order to cross them sideways adequately and bow doesn't hit, splash or submerge directly against them. Less of an issue if doing same on water jet wakes specially when exiting sideways.

Happy Boating
