i agree with you codders, thing is with a D class it doesent have much inherant bouyancy in the hull floor unlike say the sealed hull on a r.i.b, unless its a flooding one ,,and every different wave sort will have different effects on each and every type of boat , i was thinking more on the swamped boat not recovering starts to slide down the wave dipping and then turning over sideways .

the tubes need to be hard or up to working pressure ,dont forget that in rough waves the cold water slopping onto /over the tubes will have a cooling effect more than normal and you will get a pressure drop ,

Actually - having thought about it - I was trying to imagine a RIB carrying 500 litres of fuel = 110 gallons = 770lbs or, more interestingly = over 500, most of it going to Gordon

Holy b****y f*****g h**l

think the worst rough sea which caught out a lot of boaters in my area was 10th august 2003 in the tees and hartlepool bay area ,,,august fine sunny day hardly any wind and a flat sea ,,,all types of boats were out ,,,just after noon a big black cloud appears from over middlebrough about 8 miles away and someone says a supermarket roof had been damaged by the weight of rain water ,, then it hit us ,,,all hell broke loose bad style sky black as night ,,,,,dozens of maydays boats /sinking/lifeboats launched ,persons overboard ,viz from the rain was bad enough but with the amount of rain water falling and the roughness of the seas some boats founderd ,within 2 hours sun was out blue sky and the sea calm again in all i think 4 persons drowned that day one large fishing boat had sunk within a stones throw of a safe harbour both crew lost ,a large r.i.b. with a load of divers was washed onto a n offshore reef and stranded ,.some boats had been pushed miles out to sea ,,,,some finishing up down near CHEWYs part of the coast the lifeboat had to escort dozens of boats back some with injured crew ,,,after that not many of us get complacement with a calm summers day even if the forcast is good ,

I was out with Bam Bam the other day and the weather kept changing every half an hour from flat calm to quite choppy.

Scary stuff! Something similar on a smaller scale re injuries, happenedto me. On my way out to Tory island off North Donegal. Lovely sunny day. Light winds and easy swell coming from the Atlantic. I could see the harbour getting clearer when a small cloud appeared over the back of the island. Within minutes it dumped on us and threw us all over the place. The sea turned real nasty and the cloud just seemed to burst and soak us. Within minutes all was clear and back to what it was before except we were soaked and really shaken. Needed that pint at the islands hotel!
