Rough weather handling

Hi all,
I have just had the pleasure of being told what my first lecture on my Adv PB Instr course is...see above.

So to that end does anybody have or know where to get some good rough weather video/avi, ie of ribs in the rough stuff ? As they say a picture paints a thousand words.
Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Regards

Stuart

Bring your RIB to Torbay at the moment and get some first hand practice in. SE force 4-5. Be about 2m rough swell.

There were a couple of short videos on the Camel boat website of the boats in roughish water. Not very long though.

Funny how once it gets rough, the cameras stay in the drybags!

Anyway, you don't need to look any further than this site to find a rough weather handling video - except that the main RIB.net site seems to be down at the moment.

Go to rib.net and if I remember correctly, there's a "publications" link. Then look at "video" and the "RIB Cruising" video. The rough water bit might not be exactly what you're looking for - I'm thinking of the section on the way back from the Scillies - there's a subtle difference between a good helmsman who makes it all look very easy, and the narrator when he takes the controls and the nose of the boat points skywards most of the time. Also a good moment when the driver of the Gemini takes his eye off the waves and goes very nicely airborne. I love the sound of an optimax out of the water!

More of a winter warmer than a teaching aid. Maybe I'll take the video camera out and try to do a suitable video. Now all I need is a helmsman (or woman) with some good heavy weather handling experience. Mrs Jackeen??

Richard, i agree and most of the time i am driving, so pics etc are difficult to do.

I will just have to settle for flat calm in the Solent tommorow!!!

Doing it at Netley, halfway down Southampton water.
First two days are the Instr course followed by running our(students) first Adv course for the following three days.

Should be fun if not bloody cold!!

Go to rib.net and if I remember correctly, there's a "publications" link. Then look at "video" and the "RIB Cruising" video.
Main site is sorted now -- thanks!

There is also the video of last year's Round Britain in small RIBs available from the same people. I'll put some more details on the videos page soon.

Video

If you can get hold of it there is a home video (the RNLI have it as a training video) of a Atlantic 21 driving up a wave, not taking the power off. He catch's a force 7 on the nose (as it tips up), and all the crew dropping out 1 by 1 and then the 21 floating on the tubes, then self righting gear kicks in - prime example of how not to do it. This was a cock up.

Cox got fired by all accounts.

Good luck with the Course

What seems to be the problem? I took photos in the middle of a tense rescue situation.
