Waders and a sit on top for me. I'd rather have the waves and splash go over and through than over and in. One trip launching in some large surf and a 4 to 5 ft wave came rolling right over me. I was a little shaken, but no worse for the wear. In a sit inside, it would have been a different story...full boat of water.
FWIW... love my new tarpon 12'.
Well, I'm on the Downeaster Alexa, and I'm cruisin' through Block Island Sound.
I have chartered a course for the Vineyard, but tonight I am Nantucket bound.
