An example would be high speed and waves, wakes, or obstacle's that would cause a sudden turn of the boat that could cause a person to fall in the water and possibly be severely injured or even killed by the boat's propeller.</em></p><div class="item_footer"><p><small><a href="http://blogs-it.cgaux.org/vqa.php/2012/08/14/bow-riding-question">Original post</a> blogged on <a href="http://b2evolution.net/">b2evolution</a>.</small></p></div> http://blogs-it.cgaux.org/vqa.php/2012/08/14/bow-riding-question
