Just got done watching some videos about steering a boat in rough water - the one guy tells me that steering the boat into a wave at a 45 degree angle is the worst thing you can do - another guy tells to steer into the waves at a 45 degree angle - so who is right ?- the one thing that seems to be agreed to is keeping the trim down so that the front of the boat stays up and slowing down especially when going against the wind - any thoughts on this - thanks

I avoid head on, if you're going too fast you can really slam a boat, too slow and the bigger waves can push you back. I like to quarter waves, both coming and going. If you're going with the waves and with a bit of practice you can ride the top of the rollers at the right speed.
