Default Post your best boats stuffing the bow

Since everybody is so sensitive about big boats stuffing the bow in big seas.

I watched it a couple times, and all I could see was the tunnel sneeze a few times, and some spray, but nothing I would consider stuffing the bow. To me, stuffing the bow would create a wall of water actually coming over the bow and into the boat. But then again, I only have a 19' Center Console and have stuffed the bow a couple times in weather I probably shouldn't have been in. Since I would possibly never get a ride in one of these big cats, I like the first person view running in the different conditions.

yeah that is not stuffing. No comment of freeman, looks plenty nasty

I stuffed my 35' contender on a wicked 5' Chesapeake bay day at 27 mph. nose went completely under and a wall of water rolled up the nose, bow, and blew out the plastic between the windshield and hard top.

was fishing with my 12 year old son and some of his friends at the time and they thought it was fun getting drenched

boat was made for even rougher. we kept going and I never hit a wave combo like that again that day.

I don’t think anyone would care if not for you coming in every thread to criticize other brands and promote Freeman.

That looked like a normal rough water day in my flats boat. Stuffing the bow is when you have to duck because the wall of water is coming over your head and you don’t take the shot right in the face.

Stuffing the bow = Coming into Port Everglades on an outgoing and a 30 knot NE, running at 25 knots. Then you hit those standing holes in the water and the bow drops down and submerges ripping the deck hatch off your 31' Scarab and filling the cockpit and cabin. Wall of water knocks you down while standing behind the console and smashes you into the transom, bringing the boat to an immediate stop and resulting in a neck brace for 3 months. Nearly foundering and slapping throttles forward and watching all your stuff wash out the back.

Thats stuffing the bow...

Now that is getting your bow stuffed!

I saw this right when he posted the video and I didn't want to be the first comment because I was thinking he uploaded the wrong video.

Literally nothing happened in this video. I would be hesitant to even call that a cat sneeze..

I got caught in some 8 footers with some close duration that had me stuffing the bow on my Mako 25. I was going as slow as possible to get back inside the reef from a few miles out. After dipping down every wave the water was over the bow by a foot and as I rose out of the swell it was throwing the water up into the air a good 15 feet and covering us like a heavy rain. Nothing I ever care to do again...that's stuffing the bow to me...
