In response to Lost equipment
This is one reason I carry a .357 magnum on board at all times. If I can’t swim, and a large wake could throw me overboard, then I see that as a threat to my life which justifies me firing at the SOB.
Also, it’s true that there is less wake at high speed, but what about having the courtesy to not disturb someone’s fishing spot.
Bottom line is these guys should think twice before blowing by someone. It may be some nut with a gun like me.
