The OP asked about sitting forward, NOT about hanging over or under the lifelines. Different problem. I only mentioned that as an example of foolish powerboat behavior.while under power it is illegal to have any part of the body hanging over the side of the vessel. when under power a vessel with a mast and boom on it is a power boat.
ends all other speculation.
local therefore too.
I agree but at SML they enforce no wake, life vest on if under 13, bow riding, all jet skis and water skiers off the water 30 min before dusk etc etc. For the amount of traffic that lake has it is a rather safe place to boat.But NOT on sailboats. The geometry, speeds, and reaction to wakes is different. Show me a case with a sailboat. I am interested. Not sayin' it couldn't happen, just sayin' it's not something that does happen and is probably a non-concern for sailors. It's a "what if" rather than an established risk. Make sure they are careful and restrict it to calm weather conditions.
If there is a local rule, I get that. I follow rules.
Reverse seems like a bad idea. Considering that the pilot shifts into reverse at just about the time it takes for the MOB to get to the prop, with arms and legs flailing, a spinning prop, no matter the direction, is bad. I like the engine off suggestion, if it can shut down that quickly.There's no way to know in a real life situation if going into reverse would cause more harm than neutral so neutral it is.
Scenario drills are always a good idea. I’m thinking some MOB drills using a bumper might be a good thing to put on the agenda.I'm guessing I would turn the stern away from the MOB and attempt to shift into neutral as quickly as possible. My hand is always on the tiller and usually on the throttle. There's no way to know in a real life situation if going into reverse would cause more harm than neutral so neutral it
