Massive seas

Truely massive seas today! Might be something today with the moon being so close to the Earth, but with the Southly winds the standing waves around Old Harry and Durlston Head were impressive to see and slowly punch through.
As usual, the Parker was its normal impressive self, throwing aside the seas and giving huge confidence to those on board.
We had the "artist" on board today having a recci, for his filming of the coast (see flares).
Some of the clients got some great pictures, will add when sent them

Yes big waves, I popped out for a while today, I actually thought waves were bigger on Saturday. Didn't go any further than swanage along coast, my rib will cope reasonably well with waves it does tend to ride them rather than crunch through like your Parker which vie seen going through big stuff. I think weight has an advantage.
