Fun day in the swell

Having a narrow dangerous bar crossing to get through in my area means when the swell gets above 2m charter operators aren't permitted to head out for safety reasons. With the swell over 3m the weekend ramp and car park were all mine.

I must say I wouldn't of headed out in my bigger glass boat but my new little rib just laps it up and has the manoeuvrability to get out of the way of breaking swells quickly without any bad habits. The swells were travelling at quite some speed with us getting overtaken at 22 knots or flying down the face of some at 33knots.

All up Im still giving my 550pro tour 10/10 again for another great fun day, where I would normally of had to sit the day out

Jon

Thanks guys, they were taken by my 14yr old daughter on her compact (I had to keep my hands on the wheel and eyes on the water)
