Did anyone else notice the brown stain in the water when he turns around.

Thereís a pile of rocks that extend from the north jetty into the channel just west of where he stuck it. Iíve never heard of anyone hitting them but I always avoid that area.

Good teaching tool for some of us...

my first thought was to trim up and get on the throttle when that following wave started catching the transom. I would much rather slam that next wave than stick the bow. I thought he had good speed and attitude coming in though. What should he have done?

I will say the big thing that Iíve learned with the last two posts about Jupiter Inlet and bow stuffing is that there is a big difference in big waves that are just rolling into the inlet versus waves that are stacked up to due an outgoing tide that basically donít move.

in the event of the outgoing tide stack it seems a very strong hand on the throttle and controlling the bow lift is how you get through these situations. Itís like as soon as that bow starts to surf its way down you need to be punching the throttles before the moment of your bow touching the next wave and the rear of your boat being lifted up by the wave behind you

thats about as good of words as you could put to how I come in Sebastian Inlet if its a sporty outgoing. I mentioned in another thread about this, Jupiter seems to have exceptionally long period standing waves.

32 foot boat should keep its nose up and be on the throttles.

He was going too fast, period. You can run like that if you have a 68 Viking with 6' plus of bow above the waterline. Otherwise, slow down and pay attention.

Easy for me to sit behind the keyboard and I've never run that inlet. It looked to me that he was being prudent by not going too fast and should have increased throttle because he fell off the backside of the wave.

Why not stay off the hill and wait till slack or slower current. Have done it a few times Ft Pierce to Jupiter along time ago.

My limited experience with cats tell me they don't stand up like a deep V hull.

Invincamans stand up.

Have you ever piloted a cat?

If you'll notice right when he comes into the frame he is on the back of the wave. That wave just died. It disappeared. That set him in a slightly bow down orientation. It looked like he tried to pick up the next wave ahead, but its character changed pretty dramatically. While that was going on the wave behind him, which was traveling faster than the one he was trying to catch up with, got under his stern. I don't know if you have ever piloted a cat or not, but neither of the two I have piloted would stand the bow up like a deep V mono. It looked like he may have had 2 seconds in there to get on the throttle to have made it out of that situation. That's with that wave he was trying to catch up to kinda blending with the outgoing current as it did. Had that wave stood up as they often do when they meet strong outflow, that shot of throttle would have found him forcefully stuffing. I had to watch it about a dozen times to arrive at this point. Seas behave unpredictably. Those sure did. We can all watch the video and with the benefit of hindsight say what we would have done. That inlet was best avoided in those circumstances and if the felt they had to give it a try, PFDs should have been donned.
