What wave height can it get to? Also I herd to find what wave height the boat can take it is 1/3 * the feet of the boat. Is that correct?Word bay can be very misleading. If you are referring to the Delaware bay I would not take that on it. D. Bay is very unpredictable and can get very nasty very fast
well, if the 1/3 * length rule is true, then the sealander can take 4.5 feet waves. And I plan on putting this on itThe bay can get ugly and very nasty in the blink of an eye. Wind gusts can come out of nowhere and really turn things up quick- I have a 17' CC and I have experienced it get nasty twice. I wouldn't take that trailer in the river either- those tug boat wakes can swamp a small floating trailer like that. That thing is meant for calm shallow lakes if you ask me. Not trying to sound rude, I just don't want to see/read about you getting hurt.
What about the river?I have never heard of the 1/3 rule and I don’t know how a blanket statement like that would be accurate. Boats are built differently for different conditions. 4.5 foot waves in the De. Bay would be miserable in my 21 foot boat and would mean strong winds. The sea lander has a lot of surface area and I think it would be hard to maneuver in those conditions, currents in the bay would also be a big factor.
By river, I meant the Delaware river.I went and read all the posts and I think he was referring to that specific boat, sea ray. Can’t give any opinion on a river
Do you think it would be OK on the delawere river?I've been told that the Delaware Bay is one of the roughest Bay's in the World. This is due to it being shaped like a wide shallow bowl overall. It can get rocking rough rather quickly.
As an aside, Back in my 20's I went out on my friends Boat in the Delaware Bay, it was a little rough that day and I said to him... Is this as fast as this boat goes? And he said NO, this is as fast as my Hemorrhoids will let it go Hadn't seen him in 20 years since and then I found him here on the BassBarn
As to that Boat only taking a 9 hp motor and reading the website, considering winds & currents, I'd say you'd be better off staying in the Freshwater with it. It looks like a really neat concept, but I'd have better confidence being on flat freshwater lakes and mellow Inland rivers to be safe and fun.
Yes ,Do you think it would be OK on the delawere river?
