Surely they couldn't? RNLI crew don't carry personal VHFs OR PLBs. They just have a single shot flare on their belts. This is by no means the first time this has happened to them and on one occasion the crew were fortunate to be rescued after quite some time in the water. That said, they have to train. In Ireland they have to report in every 15 minutes to the CG on VHF.

The truth hurts. I can't get on the water so much so my only outlet is what you guys do and commenting on it. Over 3k posts of rubbish on the interweb. Time i should have been spending trying to actually move the Cardinal bouy.........

I disagree with pulling the videos. They're great to watch and if they prompt people to criticise, who cares...

Right - I've had some complaints about this thread. I really don't understand why it created such response. I have edited one post that overstepped the mark a little. However I'm not going to rewrite history or remove posts where people have questioned the wisdom of others - this is a discussion forum, anyone who posts here is inviting other members to discuss it with them not simply to agree with them.

There are almost certainly useful lessons for a lot of people here:

- recovering the boat was easier than I expected
- understanding the dynamics of the capsize would be interesting
- learning how to avoid your outboard dying in difficult seas would be useful
- considering what can be learned, even from your armchair, about how to respond (e.g. I think a polite, non-distress call to the CG might have been wise and would have saved time if it had suddenly deteriorated, but might also have prevented any distant observer who called it in launching a helo).

This is not the first time someone has capsized on ribnet, but it might be the first time the whole process including capsize and recovery has been captured on video for everyone else to share - can the whole community not benefit from that? I'm sure those involved are big enough to deal with some gentle banter, and perhaps learn from the discussion.

The thing is, us Westcountry boys spent younger years learning how not to turn our boats over rather than learning how to spell.

Looks like you all had a good laugh and managed to sort your selves out just fine!
But Iím surprised that Mat has not managed to do this before now as the wave jumping and wheelies he pulls end up with stern and out board landing first which sooner or later end up with a stalled engine which isnít good in these conditions as the capsize shows.
I have called in an capsize on the bar in Salcombe to the coast guard before now and they sent out the life boat which towed them in upside down making no attempt to right the rib.
I also know someone who liked to pulling wheelies in a large Boston whaler, he ended up submerging the nice Yamie 4st on the back ending in a engine rebuild and it wasnít even his!!

People do lots of pointless things in there lives some with more risk than others, well what is the point in jumping out of a plane or climbing up a mountain?
Have fun, be safe and be well equipped

I'm not sure that quite stacks up, I think most Ribnet members know the people who were present are not the type of people to ridicule others. In fact quite respectful to others on Ribnet but do give gentle banter to the ones we know on a personal level.

I do not have a problem with people passing comment to provoke a well constructed debate I do have a problem with those who just provoke for the hell of it.
