Nothing scarier than watching the water get close enough to the open window that you could wet your fingers if you reached out.

The 2859 will get your attention the first time you heel it over in a tight fast turn. You don't realize how high up you really are until you cut it hard over with some speed on. When sea trialing mine, I was amazed at how much water was right outside that window in a full deflection turn.

I took this picture on the USS Abraham Lincoln:

(we play out there too...)

It looks like she was coming across the wake too shallow of angle, and fell off, judging by the pic.

What's the point? So easily avoided by not riding in the trough of the wake. Either slow down or cut across the wake. It may look kind of cool, but it's just stupid boating in my opinion.

It is. Many times I see boaters cut through our wake when we are on our way from the dock to the spots we anchor. So I try to avoid the busy areas.
