If you click on those links just remove the "uk" before youtube.com and it goes straight there.

tim - for some reason your URL has an unnecessary www. at the front and then no . between the uk and youtube.

Alternatively you can embed directly into the forum using the [ youtube ] tag like this:

[ youtube ]the number of the video, e.g. 1niZ_881U2Y[ /youtube ]

with the spaces removed

Limbs being minced springs to mind. Some things really amaze me.

That is err quite ...well scary yes.

I would be very supprised if these things were "standard practise" the bunch of SNSM crews from Dinard that we (Venturers) have a twinning reationship with are a very good, professional bunch.

Regardless of whether its jet, shaft or stern drive I doubt at those speeds you'd be able to any part of your body near the prop - the force of the water flowing under the boat would keep you clear.

Does seem a slightly odd thing to be doing though.

I think the guy standing up at the front of the RIB coming along side was in the most precarious situation.
