DaveRo BS: Trump boat parade - science of it (64* d) RE: BS: Trump boat parade - science of it 07 Sep 20

My guess is that some motor boats did not stick to 10mph but were zooming about, possibly in circles, which is what owners of such boats often do. That can generate a big wake, and when the wakes from two or more boats coincide they add up (or subtract) which can create local waves that can easily swamp a small boat. That's what that picture looks like to me.
