The exact circumstances may be different (likely to be much bigger waves but probably lower speed) but the stuffing bit is exactly the same. I have gone "under" a wave once, and I imagine that a video would have had more resemblence to the boatmad videos - but fortunately no camera crew to capture my incompetence.

I couldn't find a video of a Rib stuffing guys, just thought the boatmad vids showed the basic principal, and they are good videos too! I think some powerboats are more prone to stufing although Ribs can and will do it, often down to the conditions they are operating in. Stuffs have been known to rip off the tubes at the bow and break windscreens.
Only did it the once in the little rib and got a bit wet! Haven't stuffed the hard boat yet, but its probably inevitable.

Errr - the boat did take a cupful of water on board and I think I did feel some light spray on my forehead, but as you say Polwart, quite insignificant really. I don't know what all the fuss is about.....

PS
I think the bilge pump has just switched off

I think it requires green water to pour over over the front of the bow rather than just spray to come over your head. The boat doesn't seem to slow down too much "on impact" with the wave - which also suggests it wasn't quite a full stuff.

essentially it's when you go through the wave and not over it and yet it can be painful and possibly remove you from your driving position

Yes RW - it's the first time it's ever happened to me too

What is "stuff"

In nautical terms "stuff" is short lengths of hemp string that are produced by teasing apart off cuts of rope. They are them used for packing cracks/joints in decks and hulls on wooden ships, usually followed by a coat of tar. The job of teasing the rope apart was usally given to the people in the poor house and made their fingers bleed badly. Hence the term "stuff it"
Sooooooo now you know.

Oh that is soooo true. Plus you've watched the tubes bend as the wave went up and you quitely thinking "f**king *ell I'm glad them stayed attached!"
