Hi Folks, can you help me?
I remember seeing an RNLI You Tube video of their RIB getting totally stuffed, the engines flooded and stalled and it was blowing a hooley.
They put out a drogue which held them bow into the waves.
Without the drogue, they would have been beam on and with the wave height, would have capsized.
Oddly, in the SOLAS safety equipment a drogue is suggested but not mandatory, which seems a bit daft to me.
If you know of other relevant videos, that would be good too!
