Scary, but good story, I always have trouble seeing a boat submerged.

" Open bow boats are more vulnerable to this as the open bow tends to act like a bucket and scoop up water"... DDUUHH. What rocket scientist came up with this earth shattering theory.......

All of his what to do sounded fishy, except drive the boat through. Sorry, but if one boat a day is sinking and there are 6 foot rollers, it's simple for me, don't go there.

I can't imagine a 6 ft roller coming at me. The 3ft one's on my lake are enough.

I'll stay away myself. Lake Powell is not the resting place I had in mind for my 190!
