Or Shambles bank off Weymouth in F6 on springs. That was a bit hairy...
You need to be confident in your boat and engine for a start. You also need to trust your own judgement-and be realistic about it. If your head is saying 'I'm not sure about this' then you shouldn't be there.
Having the flooding hull helps a LOT with stability at displacement speeds in big waves. The flappy thing I put on it helped too-it meant if I had to back off to displacement speed for a moment and then bang the throttle open the flooding hull hadn't filled and the boat would take off like a scalded cat.
I scared myself on a few occasions as well but that was part of the buzz of doing it.
DISCLAIMER-I DO NOT IN ANY WAY SHAPE OR FORM ADVOCATE GOING OUT IN EXTREME/MORE THAN CAT C RATED CONDITIONS IN AN SR4 TO ANYONE.
