I've found the infamous DHD dunking. Unfortunately it was on Roycruse's Riblog site which is no longer up. I'll ask him to stick it on You Tube.

Not as wet as these guys i'd expect.! This isnt really a typical slow speed, large following sea stuff that we'd be more likely to encounter on our ribs ... but it gives the idea.

These guys .....but impressive to watch!

Yes, I found the thread on here too, with a dead link.

I think I recall Roy also put it on Google vids?

Alant - what part of it was the cock up - what should you have done differently - so are all stuffs driver error - or more to the point what needs to occur in order to make them happen

Apologies for all the questions

I was in that race in a similar boat in Cowes, there is a good one coming into Gibraltar with another similar boat, they are both Phantoms by the way, parents of one or two Rib hulls!

Hi Knot Yet,

My stuff was driver error I was looking the wrong way and landed in a standing wave. Can't comment on anyone else experience, but running with a big sea you have to be very careful, short large waves are the worst.

Yep, did a similar thing and ripped the tubes all the way back to behind the consol. That was an expensive day out!

Flippin heck - so not only is it very wet but you can potentially bugger your RIB at the same time

Alant - if you'd seen the standing wave (didn't know they did that) what should you have done?
