Seaskills

I agree: "too many people fail to pay the sea the respect that they should..." and I suppose such people would say that there are boats that could deal with this:



Everything is relative, boats and seas, horses for courses, but I, for one, am not so arrogant or disrespectful to the sea as to believe that there is is a boat that could deal easily with this, if at all.

Rupert.

There Lighthouses hence the shallow water and rocks around them. Granted no boat could approach the Lighthouse but on some of the shots the surrounding water is pretty rough but yes they is boats that can handle it.

All weather Lifeboats (give away is in the name), offshore standby boats, big boats, purpose built craft for those conditions.
That big french rescue tug that Codders posted would go through it ok.

Course I'm jokeing....I think!
Seriously,in a balls out contest with the 'Big Briney'there can only be one winner,as plenty dearly departed would testify [if theycould]!!
Ribs are great rough water craft with better sea keeping abilitys than most,but if you take the Piss sooner or later whatever your in in ,you'll come a cropper.Better by far IMO to stay within your own limits,and that of your craft!...and I like wave jumping as mush as most!

Isn't Mat H made of rubber though and floats?
The way he's jumping them waves in that video somewhere on here it's a good job he has the pilots licence.
I wont say a fear, but more something that bothers me sometimes when in the rough, is a rouge wave creeping up on ya (no were not talking about Stu in a gimp mask here).

The author is a bit of a scare mongerer and he seems to rate average boaters very lowly IMO. If we haven't been round the world with some of the worlds best seaman at least three times then we will probably die the next time we try to leave the harbour !
