Scary but strangely entertaining. It's almost comical where you see the passengers sitting on the floor and sliding back and forth with all the tables and chairs. Goes to show the forces involved when you see a forklift tipped over.

i just showed this to a colleague who used to be on cruise ships and he says the boat yard have screwed up as everything except the chairs should have been secured down, the forklift should have been in a garage and all the cabinets should have been both welded and bolted to the deck!

I remember coming down the Big Russell in the Fastnet storm of 1979 in a 27 foot Spinner Yacht and that was quiet scarey. Seeing the bow disappear under water wondering if it was going to come back up again. I have to hand it to my dad his boating skills were magnificent and we made it to St Peters Port ok. If only we had camcorders in those days. Apologies for mentioning the word yacht on Rib Net.
