this past weekend on the ohio river i had 4 yaughts come up river side by side when they got close they slowed down and fell in behind one another . the wake these 40' monsters were puting out scared the life practicaly out of my wife and didnt do me any favors , 6' high rolling water one wake after another if i had been ancored it would no doubt have pulled the nose under , heres what i did tell me if there was a better way to handle this although im here so obviously it worked , i turned my 16' river jon the same dirrection up river as they were traveling and stayed on top of the wake rode it out up river a half mile till it faded away much like a surfer would have , the front half of the boat and i do mean half wasnt even in the water . is there a better way to handle this ? and would i have been in any more danger if i had just sat there broadside ? i know on small wakes i turn in to them and go over them but big ones have come over the nose thats not good right ? any thought or oppinions appreciated .
