Wouldn't a slight angle of attack into the waves have helped, might have prevented the bow from rising as much.
Very diffcult situation, if to much power used and you fly over the wave this could happen especially when so close to coast and in braking waves.
This has not happen to me but we did go out in bad weather, freezing and night so often we did not see the waves but radar showed really nothing but either full vision or land......... before time of GPS and we did not have Loran C onboard as they where not waterproof.
