a few of those bumps had sore back written all over them.
The Baltic hull produces a much softer ride then you are probably used to but nevertheless it also can be painful depending on the angle of approach and helmsman attitude. You will notice that the front passengers in the photos have a very low grab handle. Those photos were taken in 2007. the rib in the film was made somewhat later and the front passengers have higher grab handles so at speed they are not leaning forward only sitting upright. This is something which was also pointed out in the MIAB Safety Report about the Celtic - Pioneer. We addressed that issue long before that report. There are a few large UK made seasafari type ribs in the Solent and not one of then has high grab handles for the forward seated passengers and yet they were coded.
