Whilst I'd be the first to agree with respect to Harleys, Cadies, and most of the production lake boat dross, when they take something a little more seriously, they do it quite well.

Nice vid classic example of American commentry "Go bob wow they got the Horsepower and the handling, and did he say 6-8 foot seas must have been the bit they didn't show "the boat didn't make it that time ", must be why they still measure in feet and inches .6-.8m doesn't sound half as impressive

I actually think the estimate of 4-8 feet was a bit off, more like 3-5, but..how the hell do you get .6 -.8M from 6-8 feet??

I didn't .6-.8m was about how that sea looked to me , or better described as glassy with a well spaced gentle swell. then they hit the 4 footer and nearly flipped it

I expect if your 4 metre zero freeboard rib were in amongst those swells, instead of a 41 footer, with a height from keel to deck of over 7 feet, they'd look more like 3-5 feet. As it is, you'll just have to imagine it, along with the thought of approaching a 5 foot swell at nearly 100mph. actually, I rather think it's unlikely anyone on this site has the first idea what that might be like.

so you keep battling the 18" chop with ya 25mph dinghy, and feeling like a warrior

There ya go again biggin up up yours puttin down mine , Adrenalin is not all about Horsepower and speed .
No i haven't seen huge swells in a rib , But i do know what a very big swell feels like and looks like with yer ass at sea level , holding a 2m paddle upright in my hand outside the outer hebrides and around the Butt of lewis gave me a very good way of estimating wave height . and how far down the trough of a wave is as you start surfing down from the crest. A 5 m sea kayak was all I needed then to experience that . No horsepower and a 58cm beam . 41 foot and nearly 100mph
