I watched that vid and thought it looked fake, some of the jumping splashes just didnt seem right to me.

Or am I being too cynical ?

Pity we dont get the shoals of Tunny anymore now in the Yorkshire area , now they were one big mega Mackerel up to 700 ilbs though though it was started in the early 1920 s they never came back after ww2 theres still a Tunny club in scarborough though .

No I can see your point I initially thought that also but hey ho even if it is fake it's a good fake

Should say .. when a 35 footer comes at your 6m RIB a mid ships deliberately and dives under you .. and then repeats it from the other side, after circling the bow and the stern ...'and' hits the boat you know you've become a subject of interest ... not a thing you forget in a hurry

I wondered too .. I did say I havent ever seen this before, but theres too much on there to fake when I see it, and I wondered if they were playing in some kind of low pressure wake ? but why they would want to get so close to a prop is mystifying ?

That was probably just the guy with the camera sh*tting himself when that Orca came close to climbing aboard.
