I hear there is a manouvere called the anchor 180 (not for the faint hearted,or sain)

requirements are 1 good sized anchor attached to a length of chain and rope the bit furthest away from the heavy end needs firmly securing to something substantial in the boat
or the mother in law,
once you have reached the required speed above 35knts the heavy bit is thrown over the side,(you must take into consideration the length of the rope and the depth of water you are in to calculate how much time you have to hold on MOST IMPORTANT

I have been assured that this is the fastest way of turning your boat around and getting rid
of unwanted relatives
If you try this manouver and survive could please post your findings along with any photos you may have of before and after and also comment on how the emergncy services reponded.

No responsibilty can be taken by myself for anybody trying the above manouvere.

I have in fact been party to something similar.

Someone (not me!) forgot to pull the anchor up while we were trolling a lure and the boat turned 180 degrees quite rapidly

I found that turning whilst flat out and (importantly) in mid air, gets you to Portsmouth A&E quite quickly - from wherever you might be on the Solent.

One of the Jono's, Garton I think, is quite good at turning a RIB upside down

Ohh arrh, your quite correct, though its really strange, cause it is not caused by changing the round turny thing, it only happens when I have been drinking the fermented apple juice in large quanities!!!

Still now Mr Darling has had his way, will have to cut back ..... Bar steward!

point said rib at said wave
go as fast as you can and hope the wind is aiming at you

Now where's the difficulty in that?
