Awesome... Love how the bilge pump is running right after they stop...

I will honestly admit my days of a fast running CC over long runs is OVER.

Its better to be doing 14kts when bad things happen... missed the hands thing, maybe a little panic there...

that's scary, they are one wave away from the bottom
what kind of boat has no scuppers , and relies on bilge pumps to take all the water off the deck and below deck.

I did that in a yellowfin a couple years ago going to the ob monster shark, it,s a little scary. We're the guy really screwed up was pulling the throttles back, if it was real shitty he had the next one break over the transom.

I awlays wondered why the bIG Novi's had scuppers up the side towards midship, but after watching Deadliest Catch it's about getting the water out as quick as possible.

Funny how useful a bucket can be:

fire extinguisher
bailer (faster than most most bilge pumps)
tool box
sea anchor
head
et al

As long as the children go feet first, its a great little dipping pool too... Of course watch out for head first, not so good...

Yes first time I had to use a bucket for a toilet... My daughter now walks around and at the end of each aisle with the big red buckets go daddy do you need to poop?

26' Webber Cove lobster boat.
also, the decks on most novis slope forward, so without scuppers or freeing ports at midship, the cockpit would always be flooded.
