I wonder how my cat would behave on such a wave. I presume that initially you are moving faster than the water
, as the wave builds on your stern the water
starts moving faster than the boat, and that IN BETWEEN, there is a period where no water is flowing past your rudders, and you have no steerage.
And during that time, the captain
is furiously trying to steer to starboard, but the water has started to move faster than the boat, hitting the backside of the rudder
and pushing him further to port.
Do I have that about right?
