rough weather seamanship

Rough Weather Video

Yeah, I know I really shouldn’t be doing this. Showing rough-weather videos to boating junkies is like feeding the bears at Yellowstone. It’s not good for them.  They want more.  They will go to YouTube and spend (waste) hours looking at rough-water videos, then bad weather videos, then tornado videos, then videos of that cool electric helicopter, then the video of that kid saying, “NOT FUNNY!!”

Too bad.  The Nordhavn Dreamers’ Group on Yahoo turned me onto this and I’m just passing the favor (curse) along.

Have you experienced anything like this?  I’ve had some pretty wicked rides out of coastal inlets where tides and wind were opposed, but this?  Nope. Hope never to.
