Unfortunatly (or fortunatuly, depending on the ego) I don't have pictures if this moment, but alas, my first stuff. Coming across tustumena lake (28 miles long by very wide) with a 50 to 60 mile an hour tail wind I was hitting a few waves with the bow and blowing some impressive water into the air about 15 feet, so I trimmed out a little better and it stopped doing that. Thought it was all good and I decided to stop paying attention for a few seconds to look at some scenery. BIG MISTAKE!!!!! Bow hit the wave bringing me to a screeching halt and slamming my face into the lexan windshield snapping or stripping the threads on all of the vertical nylon attaching screws. Whilst in pain I still made the effort to bring the boat to a slow stop and regain my sences. Buddy that was with me said the bow hit about two feet below the top of the wave and sent an impressive 30 foot blast of white spray into the air and about 6 inches of water streamed down the tubes and off the back.
Question: Would this have been worse with the "V" nose tubes? My snub nose front tube deflected most of the water from entering the boat, bilge pumps cleared in about 2 minutes. WoW!!!
P.S. If you have a windshield on your console, make sure it is secured with nylon screws, I think I would have been seriously injured if the widshield hadn't moved..
