    Default Observations of SA near max capacity

    Had a rare large crew last night plus lead.

    Calculated the following.
    Boat 5800
    Stock ballast 3500
    Lead 575
    Humans 1460
    On board gear 250

    I was at 11585, SA is max rated at 11700.

    Boat ate it up, surfed at 11.0mph no problem.

    Was at 9.5-10.0 pitch and the wave was ridiculous, had one girl 5 foot tall and the wave looked taller than her when she was in the pocket.

    Did you have a scale sitting on the dock before everyone got in the boat? Because that's not a terrible idea really haha

    Also if you didn't get pictures I can't blame you, having that many people on the boat you don't have time for anything else it seems

    Did you try to get up on a plane while the bags were still full?

    I did not have a scale, but for fun I asked everyone for their appx weights. I already know what my gear weighs roughly.

    Yes, It was chaotic and got two newbs up for first time (was a little late for pass the handle).

    I know these teenagers videoed the wave last night, I will see if I can get any shots of the wave.

    The problem with running with a big crew is that you're then disappointed when you're out next time with a small one lol

    That's great news Larry. I cant remember what your prop and elevation are? We need to get some video of an intermediate/advanced surfer, say, 160-200 lbs on a 4.6 - 4.8 board and see how far back they can keep the push, (could be any board just need something for consistency to compare). That was the biggest thing I noticed, the wave didn't seem that much larger....the push just seemed to be endless...all the way back for 20-30' or however long it ended up being. I am headed out to the lake tonight and should have enough people to get some decent video to post up this weekend.
