Stuffing Vid's

Can anyone post a link to some stuff videos, have done a search but am not interested in people killing monkeys. Was amazed at how wet i got and how much water came onboard, but my eyes were shut at the time, would be interested to see just how it happened.

Stuff or Snuff for a few of us snuff is probably more appropriate - my experience on my RIB so far can be safely classed as a near death experience and Gibbos - am yet to experience the "Stuff"

Iím sorry I canít help with any footage, but can testify to the amount of water that can come up over the bow.

I had a very Public stuffing once, and Iím not talking about any dodgy goings on in a car park whilst I should have been exercising my canine friend. (it gets worse, I'll Stop)

Getting ready to leave Yarmouth in October last year on one of the cruises, whilst everyone else was donning big jackets and drysuits etc, Iíd said ďIíll be alright in my shorts and jacketĒ a summer Musto thatís more of a wind proof layer than anything.

Anyway, on the way back we hit that spot just on the western edge of Cowes entrance where it can pick up a bit, and in front of Andy Hightower, Pete 7, Avocet etc I went straight through a wave and took a wall of water up over the bow which was dumped directly on top of me. I was very wet, and soon got very cold.

The best stuff I ever witnessed was again on a Yarmouth cruise, but the year before when the weather was famously bad.
A few of us had made it round to Yarmouth from Pompey, but Nos had made it across from Lymington in his SR4 with his mate on board. Whilst mucking about outside the harbour entrance he performed what was a stuff, but could more accurately be described as a Ďsubmarineí where Iím sure the whole boat was briefly submerged.
One funny memory was me and Pete following on behind picking his buoyant belongings out of the sea after they flowed over the transom with the water as he tried to empty the hull by giving it loads of welly. Lunchbox, flask, tacklebox, it was all left in a nice neat trail behind him.
A recording of that one would be great viewing.

Don't have a video but very clear memory of it. River Humber November 2007 wet cold and sea/river trial of 7.3 metre rib. Never having been in a boat on the Humber ie the water looks like the banks BROWN! Looking like I knew what I was doing checking everything out (my wife and a friend of the person who owned the rib at the time up front) looking and listening to the engine I looked round to see this BROWN mountain in front of me, just as we landed in a 24 ft hole the same size as the boat The wall of water that followed was the same length as the boat The look on the face of my wife who decided not to put on here dry suit I thought that was the end of boat ownership for me!!!!!! I have never seen water pour over the side of the tube never mind the transom! Monumental cock up on my part boat survived so I bought it (figured I couldn't cock it up any worse). But give me the open sea any day over a muddy river.

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?
