Yep, mad.
About thirty years ago we did something very similar with a 6hp 2 stroke on a long keel sailing boat through a narrow channel.
I was in my teens and the "handler", religious experience it was.
It worked out BUT as a grown up I often wonder why we did it.

In the absence of an emergency, staying at sea for a few hours more can minimise the risk (and prolong the agony).

I have seen this before IMO it's impressive how the skipper lines the boat up to surf in ten out of ten in my book

Very good seamanship but I do think an element of luck was on their side
As it could of gone one of two ways
