You're not always able to travel in the trough . I mean the changes of the Wake setting up the way you want to travel is slim to none. so you say do not drive at a 45 degree angle so you should drive directly into the wave then?

It is more comfortable and drier going into or with the waves of possible. At some point wave height will not allow it.

Good advice on slowing down, staying in the boat. I've read many stories of empty boats being found empty drifting(out of gas) here in the Pacific Northwest. If you get bounced out of your boat, without a PFD even in the summer up here, you will last a few hours at best. Nobody can swim even a thousand meters to shore in any kind of chop or cold weather.

I was taught to approach the bigger waves at a 45 degree angle. Works for me

This is bad advice for a bowrider. 30 - 45 degrees angle to head waves makes sense, along with slowing down, and trim up a bit. This needs to be made clear. Head on will swamp the bow and could cause a nose dive in to next wave.

In really large waves, I agree. In shorter, more manageable waves a 45 degree angle is very hard on your back.
