Agreed, but I'm willing to bet my caribe rib with 25hp sits higher in the water.
I followed a soft bottom dinghy with a 5hp today leaving the dinghy dock that was digging into the bottom. He left a highway of mud. My wife and I blew past him and his mud trail leaving narry a scar or a wake for that matter.

Re: Reef Decimated

Sink the superyacht: instant artificial reef. Leaving the captain locked aboard as fish food optional.
