Yep happened to me too .. I heard one of my old seadog family laughing at me from the heavens as the skipper, as my crew got a good dunk when we took a force 6-7 breaker over the side
Respect to the old boy up in the heavens who taught me so much ! ..We were in a RIB ..the only boat that could take it easily, and still let us laugh .. and learn
and run home safe and sound
When in doubt boys ..trunks down .. else up ,dont frighten the laydees now
