I find that when it looks like I might get waked, I noodle a bit, don't hold a steady course as if I have had a few beakers of beer, (I NEVER drink while operating the boat or have grand kids aboard) but the over takers need to actually take into account that I am taking up more room and they have to slow or alter course. It's particularly bad in the Copeland Islands...
The Sea Ray that passes you at 25 knots, 25 feet off your side and knocks your crap all over the cabin and hurts your crew can be filmed and charged. Then sued. Maybe you could own his boat? The law says you are responsible for your wake.
Fire hose, potato gun,
Don't believe everything that you think.
