Ah...the pedantic ....what fun....case closed in my opinion, having been there in person, having edited the video to make it look 'wild'. Ok for you? Any other case I have to answer?

Verdict...guilty I'm assuming(of what Christ knows!)

Not condoning - or supporting (staying neutral as always).... but 'shit' happens.
Even to the experts (this weekend too)
Port Isaac RNLI lifeboat capsizes on routine exercise | This is Cornwall

And as the RNLI pointed out, 'their crews followed the correct procedure, no one was hurt...........'

Mollers. Go tell em they were wreckless as well as see what happens!
Difference is if my outboard hadnt of given up 90% of its power .then i wouldnt have been in that situation. Ive been thrashing that surf for more than 11 years and never had engine failure with any of my yamaha engines!
Sh-t happens. If you can enjoy the ride then all the better.
Seems to be the people who shout the loudest do the least boating!!
If this scares you, which would be lack if understanding or offends you:get advice or help as it doesnt us. Just good fun.!!

Hmmm, when we discussed on Saturday night about posting up the videos we did think of the arm chair ribnet police jumping all over this. However we felt it was worth publishing as it showed how quickly things can go wrong and shares experiences with like minded people interested in boating. Also we felt that the recovery was worth publishing as without blowing are own trumpets felt that we did a good job of turning the boat back over and getting Matt out of the water.

I was most surprised to see you Mollers being the arm chair police especially as I recall a thread you posted not long ago about boring home made videos being published here and that you don't watch them

I personally think there was more good to be had out of showing the video for others but I am disappointed the thread has turned into "hand bags at dawn" and to minimise any further derogatory comments to MattH I and others have pulled the videos.

As Humber P4VWL said all this does it stop people posting due to a fear of negative comments

I suspect that the truth is that the Cornish RNLI were wreckless but not reckless!
