Has anybody else noticed how some boats you meet on the river pass with a friendly wave and leave little trace of their passing other than a shared enjoyment of being afloat on the Broads and very little wake.  Other boats you meet announce their presence by their iconic bow wave and only after their passing do you feel the impact of their wake.  Often, just when things have settled on the river, a sudden reflection of their wake off the bank starts the boat rocking again and again.……..  Eventually tranquillity returns.
And then they come back!!!

And its the small outboard motor jobs that seem to make the most disturbance you get a large boat go by no bow wave you don't hardly notice it  then you get knocked all over the show when you look its a outboard small boat then you get a Brundel Navy boat and they try to take you with them, i have often wondered what the technical reasons where.

It is partly down to shape and partly down to driver attitude.
Just goes to show that what looks right can do horrible damage in the wrong hands and that what might at first glance seem poorly suited to the area can be ideal if its limitations are acknowledged.

I guess those with small boats become accustomed to the ups & downs of life afloat. Just moving about the boat can create violent motion.

For those that luxuriate in larger vessels they come to expect continued stability akin to life on land.

Anybody who is aboard a boat, afloat, should be prepared for sudden, unexpected movement be it from un-nessesarily large wash or the bumpy mooring techniques favoured by people like me.
