    Does your FZ hulled boat spray you in the face?

    I rode my new FZS in the gulf for the first time and I was surprised by the amount of water that was coming over the bow. I was not getting just a light splash. It was shooting a wall of water across the whole bow whenever I came off a wave and hit the next one. I don't see spray deflectors on the race boats so I'm thinking there is some trim or rider position that minimizes this. Any ideas?

    Not really. I'd go with a spray deflector. Jettrim makes some really cool ones; I like the one with the flames. I had this one on my XLL, it really helped when riding offshore. I'll be putting one on my new project.

    Do you perfer riding sitting down or standing could put the trim up one maybe two but you won't stay "hooked up" well in the chop and will porpoise all over...
