I tend to be outdoors and shooting at the worst time of day (middle of the afternoon). I usually shoot wakeboarding and other boating activities during this time - Are there any hints/tips on what I should set my camera settings to in order to help with the light???? I usually shoot on aperture priority with a low f stop.

A neutral density or polarizing filter will help reduce the chance of overexposure (at the expense of shutter speed). Also spot metering on the subject will help narrow the brightness of the ocean possibly helping exposure.
