Coastguard drops winchman to d class below

He gets him on board with relative ease, despite downdraught ,wind and big waves , however they decided to move to calmer water to recover the winchman from the DClass.

Excellent stuff.

How do you guys get along with the bench seats in those conditions?

With some discomfort on the bench seats , But the Hysucat is amazing sea boat, It seems the harder you drive it in that kind of weather the more comfortable the ride is.....????

But it takes a bit of bravery to gun it into some nasty seas. And with trial and errror you descover you are getting hammered by going slow.

And when you gun it, that is followed by suprise, that you are not in a heap on the deck needing medical attention.

Every time Myself and Gavin go out into some nasty stuff, wind over tide etc etc, We come back amazed by the Hysucat, We did not have the benfit of been thought how to drive them, But we did get Paul Lemmer on it for 10 mins when he was in Dublin and he gave us some very important pionters. Charles has been invaluable too.

We often go out in force 6-8 in Dublin and have no worries about the Hysucat....

You're not wrong Tim. It is always a natural reaction to throttle back a touch when facing a steep wave in a mono-hull - the Hysucat demands you really floor it. Quite incredible. I really do hope you and Gavin can bring her to the 'Get-Together' so that other forum members can appreciate what we are talking about.
