There have been several deaths here in Arizona this year due to people "bow riding" while traveling at speed. These people have been thrown or fallen overboard, gone under the boat, and been struck by the propeller. Horrific injuries, some decapitated! Never ride on the bow of a boat traveling faster than no wake speed!! Besides, it is illegal, and even if no one is hurt or injured, a hefty fine will be levied against the boat operator if this is seen by law enforcement.
