As far as I know there is nothing you can do. Maybe adjust how you hit the waves, adjust the speed, trim ect. Basically the deflection of the water is handled by the curve of the hull. Don't think you can change that on your boat. Getting wet in a tiller has as much to do with where you are sitting and your driving skills as anything else. I run a 20' fiberglass and I still get wet from time to time. If the wind is blowing you will also get wet, nothing at all you can do about that. Just one of the trade-offs for running a tiller.

If you went to a steakhouse for a special dinner would you tip the waitress?

You are taking a special fishing trip I would certainly tip the guide.



Not when they're being paid $15/hr now.


You seriously don't tip waitresses/waiters anymore?


When wait staff/bartenders were making less than min wage and their main income was tips, I tipped 20% and sometimes more. I don't tip 20% at bars/restaurants in any city that mandates a $15/min wage and no tip credit to the owner which means that in St. Paul and MPLS, I don't tip 20%. Once the entire state goes to a mandated $15/hr, I won't do it throughout MN. When my wage/salary is bumped up double or triple what I was making before and I haven't done a damn thing to increase my output to make the company more money yet still make a buttload in tips which I only have to claim 8% of, then I'll tip 20% again. In the land of liberal lakes, I don't see it happening.
I've always tipped the guides/bomber drivers when I've gone ice fishing and wouldn't stop even if the state mandated a higher min wage because they aren't doing their job expecting a big tip (in my opinion) and work in freezing temps, bad weather, etc.



Interesting reasoning. So because a person makes a decent wage (waitress) they are less deserving of a tip than a person making real good money per hour. (guides) Are you sure you aren't just rationalizing a way to be cheap?

You can save yourself even more money by eating at home and buying your own beer. No need to let anyone else earn a living serving you.
