It was more like the person in the bow handling the anchor line that was trying to take up loads of slack and not getting at least a few turns around a cleat to stop/and hold the boat whilst the wave passed ,

When the wave knocked them off balance the line went slack causing the boat to come beam on ,if you look even the helm stands up & tries to have a go in vain at holding the boat ,
I doubt given the size of the wave even 2 people would not have held the boat
As I said about the rnli,s method of veering earlier in the thread and the importance of having the line tight in such conditions & a proper closed bow fair lead for the anchor line to run through & cleat or Samson post to jam or stop off ,

if you look in the Rnli video everything's under control
the bow/ anchor man is sat down in the bow
(less chance of loosing balance )keeping taut & paying out the anchor line with a couple of turns around the cleat ready to jam /"stop off" should a large wave approach ,

Ok i wasn't there at the time so can only make an educated guess but its food for thought for others in a similar circumstance .

I don't think that was their anchor line, that looked like the line that was also wrapped around their prop which got them into the problem in the first place - apart from trying something pointless in the first place!
