    Well here is a Idea

    Have a flap that opens at X degrees to help prevent blowover

    Let's say a air tank pneumatic latches holding a large door in front to release packing air.

    Like NASCAR roof flaps? Then the boat trips and you stuff. Boat racers know the risks and are willing to put it on the line for the hardware. The recreational egos...

    No flap is going to stop 32' long tunnel once the angle of attack is too high.

    Yep, I have watched them in the Bay City races and felt unwanted lift in small boats running next to bigger ones a few times. Picking on a bigger boat with an STV is fun until you get right next to them and are blown around.

    Its really interesting to know how "on edge" these boats are at any time. I also can't believe how hard the hit is into the water, the in-cabin video posted earlier was crazy! I'm glad all the crew was ok from these blow overs.
