Are you sure, I don't recall there being anything stating it has to be "on plane". The conversation is about wake size. "Slowing" down for a boat while producing a larger wake is massively...

Are you sure it was 50 Gal? What size is your fresh water tank? Any rain lately? Any water trails from above? Water leaks suck, but 50 gallons of water is massive. Was there any water in the bilges?

No idea, my boat they angle inward. I use heavy straps and keep them tight. Hopefully never get to test out how well they are holding the boat.
