Second experience in my rib was a small craft advisory. Six foot peaky seas. Tried em slow, ok, tried em medium, ok. Fast, Bumpy, airborn, and a bit hard to hold on: Fun as hell!!!! Did I mention the snow, and the fact that no one else was remotely close? Try to keep your bow trimmed into the sea.. Confused or sideways seas: Tell passengers to puke over the side, and not on the floor, also, rain gear is mandatory. Following sea: When there over 6 foot, try to ride the trough bow down, under 6, slow plane, be quick on the throttles so if you come off plane the wave behind you doesn't make you do an immediate 90 (broach). I might be full of it, but it works for me. Worst mishap of mine was in a following sea, had the trim set for most efficient plane (bow up) and was on a slow plane in 6 foot seas, came over a trough and the nose fell and hit two feet below the forward wave causing an instant stop, 30 foot vertical wall of water, and my face crashing into the lexan window breaking all of the nylon bolts. Ouch!
Last but not least, whether you think it or not, dont yell oh sh...., that really scares the passengers.
P.S. If my driving advice sucks, please let me know, I'll stop giving it.
